Biesiman in Xiaojin County, Sichuan was originally built during the reign of Qianlong Emperor in the Qing Dynasty. Local costumes are an artful mixture of Manchu and Tibetan cultural and clothing design elements. Some of the costumes have been passed down from generation to generation and well kept. Each and every one of these hand-made costumes is a valuable piece of art. They all feature perfect color schemes and exquisite embroideries. Every embroidered pattern, be it a flower, a butterfly or a human figure, are all true to life and there seems to be a story behind each set of patterns. [Photo by You Zixuan/China.org.cn]
