Hello Textile Enthusiasts,

I am a neophyte to textiles; although I have always had an interest in them I've just never had the time to pursue the interest. I recently visited China with my Chinese sister-in-law. It was a whirlwind trip without time for proper research or preparation on my part. There, in the town of Qingyan (about 30-45 minutes south of Guiyang) I saw some fabric and had to have it. It turns out it is a skirt. My sister-in-law said it was Miao, but she had no other information about it, nor did we ask the woman from whom I purchased it.

I discovered tribal textiles.info - what a great site! Please, if someone has some idea of where this skirt came from (Black Miao?), I'd appreciate it immensely.

Perhaps you'll cringe at this, so forgive me, but I want to wear the skirt. (Why keep a Van Gogh locked in a vault? It should be displayed!) How do I care for it?

I'm going to try to attach photos of the skirt and detail images. I'm a newbie at posting to forums, so please forgive if the images aren't great.


Thank you in advance!


-Karen

File comment: The waistband measures 14.5 cm x 119 cm. The pleated material is 55 cm wide. The embroidered border is 15 cm wide. I see evidence of the threads used to secure the pleats while the skirt was drying.

File comment: underside of the waistband and detail of the tie. Some of the stitching appears to be by machine, most of it is by hand.
