I'm guessing that this a baby carrier (?).

Yes, this is a Miao babycarrier from southeast Guizhou. 'Clothings and Ornaments of the China's Miao People', page 54 describe the style as being 'mainly distributed over Kaitang and Wengxiang townships in Panghai district of Kaili county and Geyi and Pingshui townships in Taijiang county.' The embroidery skills are sometimes called 'Dazi'. Usually more ordinary babycarriers in this style have flowers and plants but yours has the striking designs - I can see dragons and birds.

I saw a couple of babycarriers which were even more ornate but have echoes of this in Taijiang county in 2005. They were brought into a village of a different Miao group and we did not get to understand their background. I would say that your babycarrier - which I find more attractive - is an older one.
