Wonderful!

A small school ensuring that the art of their local embroidery doesn't die out. The work takes hours and the samples on display for purchase are so beautiful.

Beautiful silk embroidary
Jul 2019 • Couples
A lovely little place to stop and admire some hard work and beautiful products. We stopped here whilst wondering through Baisha and were shown around the workshop. So many hours are put into each piece and the lady who showed us round explained (in clear English) the experience and quality of different pieces and the work they do with the local communities in up-skilling woman.

We weren't pushed into buying anything but bought some pieces that reflected the Naxi culture and paid what we were happy with (they take cards!).

Extraordinary silk embroidery.

Looks like photos. Also a school. See to believe it, each embroidery or picture takes months. Very interesting.

Beautiful embroidery - double sided even
May 2019 • Couples
The teacher showed us round as it was lunchtime. Her English was perfect and the work these women do is incredible. The quality of the master embroiderer is mind blowing.
We were not pushed into buying at all.
We did buy one and are very pleased with it.
How they use such fine thread and make double sided art pieces was a mystery but the work they do is wonderful

Superb embroidery

We had visited the sister shop in Shangri-La and because of this we were offered 50% off the pictures. Whether this is real or not but worth bargaining. A lovely young lady showed us around and told us what was happening. Some of the finished work is mind blowing. The art work is really fantastic.

Worthy stop for 10-20min to view the pieces, watch artists at work and learn a little more about Naxi culture. We were asked if we were keen on purchasing but they weren't pushy. Very friendly lady with good english talked us through the school.

An amazing school with a shop that sells student work, along with the work of master level embroidery artists. Work has to be seen to be believed.

What a wonderful place to buy a piece of art
Sep 2017 • Friends
The school teaches handicapped and other out of work people how to do intricate, delicate embroidery and then, under the supervision of masters, has them do pieces for sale. I loved this place and found a perfect souvenir of the trip. It was expensive but definitely worth it. I'm really glad we stumbled in there.

Patience is mandatory
Sep 2017 • Couples
Although not really into embroidery it was fascinating to see the end product. Some of the works by the 'master' are really stunning. Unfortunately they were out of my price range otherwise one would be adorning my wall as I type this but the memory will live long.
The intro where we were shown the size of threads being used was really interesting but with all of these types of places it seems as though their main thought is in getting you to buy something which is all very well but after 3 weeks of travelling we were just about shopped out.
