Officials in the village of Hangka, Fenghuang County, central China's Hunan Province, have been promoting local Miao embroidery to conserve the traditional art and help alleviate poverty.

Since 2015, residents in Hangka, one of the most impoverished villages across the province, have vigorously promoted the Miao embroidery industry.

With the cooperation of local enterprises, collective organizations and wholesalers in the tourist market, disadvantaged families have passed down the traditional skill and also increased their incomes.
