Being a Bai woman, making embroidered shoes is part of the tradition. It is said that "a girl who is not good at making shoes is hardly to be a good wife" in old days, which illustrates the importance of embroidered shoes making in Bai culture. Same as other traditional handicraft inheritance problems, very few young Bai women now know how to make shoes. In order to keep this intangible cultural heritage, I invite those interested in this shoes-making technique to join me whenever time permits.
