We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Yabai Embroidery

Yabai is known as the hometown of embroidery, and its history began form Zhou Dynasty. The records in “Rites of Zhou” revealed that people in Zhou Dynasty began to embroider. After thousands of years of development, Yabai embroidery region formed its own unique style. Yabai regions used to be the capital region of Zhou Dynasty, so it’s the main range of activity of Zhou people.


















Unlike luxurious palace embroidery and elegant Suzhou embroidery, Yabai embroidery(哑柏刺绣) extensively use red, green, yellow, blue and other strong contrasting colors, full of strong local folk flavor. Yabai embroidery base fabric was also different with fabrics use in other southern regions. Suzhou embroidery were done on silk, and Yabai women mostly embroider the pattern in the dyeing cloth which have some special charm.

Yabai embroidery mainly provides affordable and seasonal embroidery products, mainly sell to remote rural areas and small towns, serve for farmers and low-incomers. Yabai embroidery use color as the language, in the form of thread, through careful design, express people's good wishes and colorful ideals. Embroidered images increase people's aesthetic taste. Embroidery which has a lower price, beautiful and practical image, firmly occupies the market.


















Under the support of Zhouzhi county government and Yabai Town under, Yabai embroidery has made a lot of work and made great achievements, but there are still many difficult issues:
First, due to technical difficulties of handmade embroidery production, more young people do not want to learn the technique
Second, embroidery artists are already old, and some of them have died, some of them could no longer make embroidery.
Third, with the development of modern commodity economy and science and technology, embroidery technology has been widely used. In this situation, hand-embroidered living space is shrinking. The shrinking market and survival difficulties mean that Yabai embroidery needs urgently rescue protection.
