Thought I would share this Ge Jia Child's shirt that was in the bottom of my collection. At least I assume it is Ge Jia, until my friend Andrew points me in another direction.

Hi, Bill

Sorry, this is a Huangping Miao child's jacket. Despite their fine embroidery, collectors don't tend to like the Huangping Miao's dull colours, which is a pity as they really do have very good embroidery skills, which are now being employed to make ..... expensive Ge Jia pieces.

I always love the little people in the Huangping embroidery especially on the children's clothes which cannot help but charm. A nice example, Bill. I don't actually have any myself - sort of waiting for a connection by visiting. I have some oldish, very fine, sleeve bands (geometric not people) which have been salvaged and sold mounted 'for tourists' which are amazing in the quality of the embroidery.

Thanks for sharing and waking up the forum a little! It was nice to get my forum digest this morning with info of 2 posts by you.

Very best wishes,

Hello Bill,

I am happy to read a contribution on children clothing. Actualy I have the same jacket you have. It is bought in Thailand at Bunrins shop in Chiangmai. The information I have found is: jacket in Taijiang Style from Huangping. In the book“Clothing and ornaments of China’s Miao People” on page 57 you see the little embroidered man.
