Ann Goodman has been in touch asking for help in understanding how a Dong hairpin in her collection might be warn. She refers us to the thread I started on a Dong thread booklet with some photos of women using needlecases http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... php?t=1249 However, my photo was actually of Miao women in the Miao village of Wu Jia Zhai, Gu Zhou township, Rongjiang county, Guizhou province in May 2005 as I don't have any photos of Dong women using thread booklets. I will, however, have a look through my photos taken in Dong villages in Rongjiang and Congjiang counties on the same 2005 trip and see if there are any showing hairpins being worn.

Dear Pamela,
Look at the thread on Dong thread cases, I noted many fine photos of Dong women. I have a very nice Dong hairpin, attached. How is it worn? Is it worn together with a comb? Perhaps members of the Forum have photos of Dong women wearing such a huge hairpin (12.5 in. L x 3 in. W) with the appropriate comb. If so, I would love to see them.
Best to all,
Ann Goodman

I promised to have a look through some of my photos to see how Dong women wear hairpins.

In 2005 I visited some Dong villages in Rongjiang, Congjiang and Liping counties in Guizhou. It was interesting to see, when I reviewed the photos, how the Dong women 'casually' twist their long hair up into buns and coils on top of their heads and secure the twists with a variety of items - decorative and/or functional. I can't answer Ann's question directly but I can certainly give a 'flavour' of how her pin might be worn. (As the Dong and Miao live very closely together in many of the villages in these counties both groups seem to be influenced by styles of hair and costume of their close neighbours.

San Bao (Dong) village, Che Jiang township, Rongjiang county, Guizhouz province. In 2005 there were more than 2,000 households and 10,000 Dong living in this village which has the tallest Dong drum town, quite recently rebuilt.
