During my recent trip to south west China which encompassed sout-east Guizhou and northern Guangxi I was fortunate to stay a night in the Dong village/township of Xhaoxing in Liping county, Guizhou province. This village has been open to visitors for quite a long time. It is the largest Dong village in China with more than 1,000 households. It has 5 drum towers and five 'wind and rain' covered bridges.

A drawback of the township having been open to tourism for some time was some very irritating old Dong ladies agressively selling textiles who persisted in pestering us whenever we emerged from our guesthouse. If only they had realised that backing off a bit would have engendered far more sales especially as we were a group of textile fanatics!

However, amongst their textiles I was very pleased to find some fine woven headcloths similar to the one which started this thread as a mystery to be solved - page one of the thread http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... sc&start=0 . The women - old and younger alike - asserted that the cloths were woven in the township/area and were headcloths. I asked two different women to show me how they were worn and both demonstrated tying the two adjaceant corners to form a type of hood which they then placed on their heads. Although generally what seem to be slightly later woven clothes are slightly longer i.e. more of a rectangle than a square, there was one newer headcloth which was pretty small and square which was also demonstrated in the same way. I did not see any women actually wearing these headcloths in Xhaoxing or around but some women were wearing what appeared to be slightly more rectangular headclothes in plain natural woven cotton. These head coverings had not yet been overtaken by the ubiquitous towelling cloths which regrettably so many of the minorites across the countries of south-east Asia are increasingly adopting to replace traditional woven head coverings.

I post below two cloths that I bought in Xhaoxing - I think that the plain, dark indigo weave is older - and also two different women modelling similar cloths.
