The Story of China's Minority Ethnic Groups

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2008-09-24 Views: 2037 | Booked times: 56 ]

The merchandise offered at Minority Story all came from the traditional craftsmanship of minority ethnic groups in China. Located in the Qianmachang Hutong of Xicheng District, the shop covers only about 30 square meters and looks more like a Beijinger's home. With the lovely cushions on sofas, exquisite bowls on the dinner table, gorgeous tapestries hanging on the wall, you can see exactly how the merchandise would look in your own house.

The shop owner is an expert on minor nationalities' handicrafts, with over 10 years of experience. She pointed out to me one of her best works on display, a Thousand-Hand Guan-Yin embroidered tapestry made from the finest Hasake wool. Priced at RMB 2888, this embroidery is the most expensive item in the shop.

The prices range from RMB 12 for a pottery bowl up to RMB 2888 for the tapestry. The shop owner cannot speak English, so you'd need an interpreter if you want to know the stories behind the merchandise.
