A visitor watches grass linen embroidery by Zhang Xiaohong at her museum in Xinyu City, east China's Jiangxi Province, Oct. 23, 2019. Dated back to the Northern Song Dynasty (91000-1127), Xiabu, or grass linen, is a kind of cloth made from ramie. Zhang Xiaohong, 61 years old, is a national representative inheritor of Xiabu embroidery. In 10002, she set up an embroidery workshop in her hometown Xinyu after studying in Tianjin and Suzhou. Throughout the years, Zhang updated the quality of the cloth and also created six ways of stitches. In 2014, she was recognized as the national representative inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage of Xiabu and also opened her own Xiabu themed museum in Xinyu. (Xinhua/Hu Chenhuan)
