The Clothes of Bai People

The Bai people, as their name would suggest, favor white clothes and decorations. Women generally wear white dresses, sleeveless jackets of red, blue or black color, embroidered belts, loose trousers, embroidered shoes of white cloth, and jewelry made of gold or silver. Women in Dali traditionally wear a white coat trimmed with a black or purple collar, loose blue trousers; embroidered shoes, silver bracelets and earrings. Unmarried women wear a single pigtail on the top of the head, while married women roll their hair. The men wear white jackets, black-collared coats, and dark loose shorts. Their headwear and costume reflect the Bai symbols:the snow, the moon, the flower, and the wind.

The modern Bai are famous for their tie dyes and use them for wall hangings, table decorations, clothing, etc.

Chuxiong Vermicelli

Yunnan Truffles

Yunnan Truffles are found in the forested foothills in the northern parts of the province, and although they are harvested by "farmers", most of whom are from ethnic minority groups, they grow wild, and are not farmed. They were fed to pigs to increase their virility, and it was only recently that these villages have discovered the commercial value of these "smelly mushrooms", also known to them as pig-snout mushrooms. But make no mistake. These Chinese truffles are truffles, but they do not have the intensity of the French Perigord truffles. To pretend to be anything more is just not giving local products the respect they deserve. Nonetheless, the Chinese truffle should be valued on a different level. Because it costs less, it can also be used more generously in the home kitchen.
