Printing and Dyeing

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/9

Printing and Dyeing is a traditional industry of the Zhuang minority. The Zhuang people in Nanning favor black and deep blue. Young or old, most of them like to wear a shirt in blue and trousers in black or both of them in black. The dying material is made with blue indigo from some kind of plant grew by the local people. And to dye is to soak the cloth into the diluted indigo, which is repeated for five or six times if you want blue product but more than ten times if you want black one. Then after washing and drying, they are ready to be made into clothes. Thanks to a plant called Nanteng grass added into the dying material, there is a color of purplish red in the blue or black cloth, which makes the colors more shining and durable.
