A length of pieced fabric ready to be made up into a skirt. Note the wax resist in two shades of indigo, embroidered work and applied plaid triangles of cloth, Gan He village, Ya Rong township, Huishui county, Guizhou province. The people living in this village are known as Qing Miao. There has been much intermarriage between Miao and Bouyei which is evident from the every-day costume of the women. This type of skirt used to only be worn at funerals but is now, in this village at least, worn for festivals, dance competitions and special occasions.
