Red Dao embroidery

Red Dzao (Dao) clothes are colorfully embroidered with designs that appear on both sides of the material. They use color extracted from a local plant to dye cloth. Many of the women’s hands are permanently stained from the natural indigo, red or green dye, that is used for their traditional costume and for products that they sell to tourists.
