This unassuming shop with a white front and simple black signage stands out on a road of fashion shops. Owner Liu Xiao Lan, a member of the Miao ethnic group, sells handmade items with an emphasis on Miao-crafted goods. The variety can include handcrafted tapestries, ornaments, and shoes. Pieces range from antiques to recently-created work by Lan herself. The butterfly pattern, an important symbol in Miao culture, is represented in some bright-colored textiles, and the owner’s own wedding dress is displayed in a prominent place.
