Guangxi is a multi-ethnic region. The Miao, Yao, Dong, Zhuang, Shui, Tujia and other ethnic groups live in an intertwined distribution pattern, but most of them are ethnic minorities in northern Guangxi. In the long historical development process, the people of various nationalities have formed an important part of the traditional Chinese culture with their own unique local national culture. Due to the geographical environment, climate, cus-toms, economy, culture and other reasons, various ethnic groups have formed their own distinctive style characteristics after long-term development, and jointly created a splen-did and diversified national culture on the basis of maintaining their own characteristics. This culture is most concentrated in the national costumes. Today, more people begin to pay attention to and appreciate this beauty. The design of Guangxi Nixing pottery, one of China's four famous pottery, also makes full use of ethnic minority clothing elements, which promotes ethnic minority culture and enriches its design.
