Rare costume of the flower Miao people of the Guizhou Province.
Cotton, Wool & Hemp.
Handstitched and embroidered.
Has one large spot on the front that needs repairs with patchwork. Has one area on the back that needs stitching to secure it.
Stains and missing threads in small patches in other places
Am calling this a fragment until it can be repaired and secured. Price reflects the condition.
