People in Rongshui Miao Autonomous County, South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, have the tradition of making Liangbu, a special kind of cloth. Local Miao people use natural raw materials to dye the cloth and smear egg white on it after drying, while beating it constantly with a mallet, which ensures the enduring luster of the cloth.


In recent years, with the development of the local tourism, more and more tourists want to buy clothes made from this brightly colored cloth, and the local traditional skills are injected with a new vitality.
