Jpeg 29K Black Thai woman showing a head cloth which she embroidered several years before - the style has less ornate edging than ones being made and worn today.  Note that, inside the house, she is not wearing a head cloth but showing her hair knot secured by a silver coloured coin fastening.  This is the lady who was demonstrating weaving in the loom above for which we went to a neighbour's house as this Black Thai lady did not have a loom currently set up in her house.  The lady of the house - shown in the photo to the right of this one with a more modern head cloth - was out collecting wood for her cooking fire when we first arrived at her home and watched the weaving.  Both head cloths are now in my collection purchased by way of thanks and in memory of these ladies' kind and generous hospitality.  Dien Bien Phu, Lai Chau Province. 9510D27.JPG
