Recently, the Lhopa textiles, a national intangible cultural heritage created by the Lhopa minority inhabiting in southwest China’s Tibet, were particularly eye-catching at the Tibetan traditional craft inheritance and development project briefing held in Beijing, capital of China.

The project was organized by China’s Ministry of Culture in 2010 to launch investigation on Tibet’s ethnic items, such as Lhopa textiles and Kyimtong Tibetan paper in Nyingchi and Lhoka.

The project also aims to help provide employment and increase income for local residents by promoting the local traditional handicrafts into market.
