This is a men's jacket from the northwest corner of Guizhou Province. The specific location is from SuoGa Village of LiuZhi and ZhiJin Counties, Guizhou Province. An illustration of the jacket in context can be found in A Picture Album of China Miao Costume and Ornaments on pages 368 and 372.

The Miao group that created this jacket is commonly referred to as the Long Horned Miao for the women's custom of wearing elaborate hair ornamentations consisting of hair or other fibers wrapped around a long set of wooden "horns."
