Jiang Qiuju, a single mother of two, who is good at making handcrafts, has increased the popularity of traditional handmade cloth shoes in the market.

The price of cloth shoes is between 180 yuan ($26.79) and 230 yuan and the first batch of 30 shoes were sold out in a minute for about 4,000 yuan.

Jiang, born in 1983, always has innovative ideas when making cloth shoes, as well as other handicrafts such as rag dolls, pillows and towel boxes.

Jiang said she hopes to sell handmade cloth shoes outside of mountainous areas in Enshi, Central China's Hubei province. She added that she also hopes she could help contribute to local tourism products and could potentially motivate other women to make traditional handicrafts.
