Artisans Story:

The Yao people live in Guizhou province. Their earliest written record dated back to the Ming Dynasty. They only have language in spoken form. Women memorialize their ancestors and picture their expectations through embroidery. Their main income is from farming, which is about USD 100 per year. In this fair trade community, they work very hard to make better living through their traditional skills.

Impact on Artisans Live:

Since 2004, JBR has started working with women from HeBei Village, Guizhou. JBR provided the design while the women worked on the embroidery. Since then, there have been more than 100 women participated in the project and their income has been accumulated more than ten thousand US dollars. They used the income to pay for children's titution fee, electrical applicance. Also, they used the social premium from JBR to install a new speaker for the village radio station so that villagers will have more chances to communicate.
