Another piece I bought from the same vendor in Bangkok as described here: http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... =5501#5501

Of this one she mentioned it might have originally been men's trousers?! But it could have been a mistranslation or misunderstanding on my part.

This one is a darker indigo color, perhaps chemical indigo, more crudely painted than the first example, looks like a stencilled piece. Any idea if it comes from a particular minority group in China?

It's about 60 x 120cm.

Elizabeth, do you have better photos of this quilt cover? If you could post pictures of the centre area and the end section, I could see the patterns more clearly. From the pattern I can see on your ‘Dark indigo stitching’ photo, the plants, pomegranate and peach patterns look similar to a couple of Shang Raojia covers I have, which are not made using stencils.

Thanks for the reply, Andrew. It's in storage at my art studio (Sicily). Will take photos when I return there in March, and post them here.
