Jpeg 53K 0110E08  Woman working on some complex weaving on a backstrap loom in Gan He village, Ya Rong township, Huishui county, Guizhou province, south-west China. The weaving will be cut into pieces to insert into the sleeves of women's jackets and to use on the ornamental ends of men's head-cloths. The people living in this village are known as Qing Miao. There has been considerable intermarriage between Miao and Bouyei and the costume is very mixed.
