Recently I was able to buy a couple of new "goodies".
First of all a child jacket from the Tharu people in Nepal. The Tharu people are a large ethnic group that live in the Tarai in the south of Nepal. This small jacket is studded with silver coins. Interesting I think is the way they enforced the jacket at the inside to hold all these coins.

Than yesterday I received a Chinese child's hat, which I think is Miao, but I am not sure. Does anybody know where this beautifully embroidered hat could come from. The embroidery combined with appliqué is so precious that my respect for the women that make such pieces of art grows and grows.

Also yesterday I received my first Chinese ear cuffs.

On the section "Books" I have posted two of my recent books purchases: "Textiles et vetements du monde." and "The worldwide history of dress."

HOW INTERESTING IS COLLECTING TEXTILES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
