China's minority group of Kazakh is renowned for the unique techniques of carpet embroidery. So, it's only fitting that they would mark the CPC's anniversary in this way. For the big occasion, some Kazakh women have made an incredible carpet that blends nine types of embroidery skills.

The 90 Kazakh female artists are residents of Nilka County in the Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, part of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. They delicately stitched the emblem of the CPC, flowers, green pine branches, and the 90 years' numbers on a 90-meter long, 90-centimeter wide flaming red cloth.

As an impoverished border area county, Nilka has grown to be a prestigious embroidery base in northwestern China.

Nearly 5,000 Kazakh women's lives have been much improved by sharing their unique craftsmanship.
