I have a couple of examples of this type of carrier. Both were bought from dealers away from the area where the carrier was made. When I purchased the first one the seller had no idea where it was from. The second one the dealer half heartedly said Guiyang, but the attribution was less than fully convincing.
Again despite having a fairly nice library I am unable to locate this style in any of my books.
If anyone else can help I am most appreciative.

All the best,
Steven

Steven-
It looks like another Flowered Miao baby carrier! We had one posted back in Feb.2004 on the thread "Textile Identification" on the previous page of general posts http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... .php?t=113. You will find photos of Rachel's and also of an old one that is mine (shown here, albeit upside down), plus a discussion of To Clean or Not To Clean, not that your's needs cleaning. I confess that I love the work in these: the tiny chain stitch plus the layers and layers of folded borders; someone must have gone blind making it.

What else do you have for us? This is fun.

Susan,

Thanks so much for the attribution. I need to go through and dredge all the old posts one of these days when I have time. The older carrier you posted last year is really beautiful.
You wrote:"I confess that I love the work in these: the tiny chain stitch plus the layers and layers of folded borders; someone must have gone blind making it. " Which explains the thick glasses you see older miao women wearing when they are working.

I will keep looking around, maybe post some things I particularly like. I encourage others to do the same.

All the best,
Steven
