First off, I'd like to thank everyone for sharing their beautiful examples of these baby carriers. I too have been very attracted to these baby carriers. I was also under the impression that they were from the region of Wenshan Prefecture, Yunnan.

While older ones, featuring fine chain stitch embroidery used to be quite common, the supply seems to have dried up in the past 6 months or so, and prices have since gone up nearly 4x's(!) for these carriers (at least here in Beijing).

The use of couched thread seems to be a more recent stylistic development, giving these carriers a much bolder appearance. I find it interesting that in this case, it is the technique that has changed, while the patterning remained the same. More often than not, it is the other way around.
