To make the textile look old, and covered with the traces of time, artist used an unusual technique, as good as creating a new texture - she burned some holes on the material. On the front, she made decorations with silver and bronze threads to represent the beauty of old Miao costume. At the bottom, she hung tassels made of the same material.
Artist incorporated the patterns of yongpo (royal ceremonial robe) into modern design. The ends of the jumpsuit were decorated with modified images of Chinese characters, which are the same patterns we find at the bottom of yongpo. Artist used all embroidery techniques yongpo used, but rearranged the design by skipping some of them.
Embroidered coat for older women (百壽文袍) was made by embroidering the Chinese character longevity (壽) in different forms with gold thread using couching stitch on black satin. Artist used gold metal thread and glossy rayon or silk to represent the unique color on the coat. Artist expressed her affection for life, in particular, with the red color that comes through her artwork.
