According to the local community, the sewing culture of the Yao people dates back more than 1900 years. Learn more about the tradition and ritual around their colorful, intricate handmade garments.
To encourage local rice farmers to adopt natural farming practices, Viori pays a 100% markup to purchase naturally-grown Longsheng rice. This not only helps them financially, but it also preserves their natural environment and keeps our products free from chemicals!
Throughout 2020, Viori purchased a total of $15,000 worth of local Yao artisan ornaments, which we will give as gifts to our loyal customers throughout 2021. This year (2021), we're expanding this initiative by spreading our artisan ornaments order among more Yao women and diversifying the types of ornaments we buy.
