I was reminded recently of the machine embroidered ribbons shown in this thread originally posted by Jon Tung (JT_BJ) and added to by Iain amongst others: http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... ight=#3578

I had got out three of the textiles collected on my 2001 trip to Guizhou. They are from Gao Zhai village in Bai Jin township, Huishui county, Guizhou province. See http://www.tribaltextiles.info/Galleries/Gao_Zhai.htm for photos taken during the visit showing the traditional textiles.

As I was examining two of the textiles - a girl's hat and a woman's bib - I was struck by the decorative, embroidered ribbons used on both. I realised that the ribbons were hand embroidered. These might well be the sort of ribbons which would have pre-dated (either in time or affordability) the machine-made ribbons.

I thought that I would share some details of the ribbons with the forum.

In the ribbons shown below the one that I was unsure about initially was the black and white one. Nowhere can I get a glimpse of the back. It is securely sewn down wherever it appears. However, taking a close-up detail photo and then blowing up the image has made me 99% sure that it is hand embroidered. See http://www.tribaltextiles.info/Gallerie ... Zhai18.htm for back views of similar bibs being worn. The front bib is smaller and less ornate than the back.

the baby's hat referred to in the post above. Although I have given the link to the photogallery in the post above I am also posting one of the photos of little girls wearing similar hats.
