The photo above gives some indication of how the colour fashions of the Ge Jia in the Kaili area have changed over the past 40 to 50 years. A panel from the bottom of a woman's jacket purchased in Ma Tang village, Kaili city in 2001 and probably late 20th century (perhaps mid 1990s) is placed on top of 2 earlier babycarriers, the oldest to the right - also collected in Ma Tang village - which is probably third quarter of the 20th Century. The one to the left probably came from the Kaili area and may date from the last quarter of the 20th Century.
