How traditional Chinese cloth shoes are made

Watch more with these video collections:

Based in the city of Mianyang in China’s Sichuan Province, vlogger Li Ziqi 李子柒 has cultivated a following of almost seven million people on the popular microblogging website Weibo. Her videos, also found on YouTube, demonstrate traditional cooking and crafting projects set to calming music.

In the video above, she makes traditional Chinese cloth shoes, gluing five layers of coarse cloth to cardboard, then meticulously sewing six of those together to form a thick base of the shoe. A black cloth is sewn to coarse cloth sides before it’s all padded with cotton and sewn into final shoe form. It’s exacting work.
