Chinese Yi Ethnic Minority Embroidered Jacket Yunnan
This Chinese Jacket from Yunnan Province, was part of the traditional Yi Ethnic Minory costume. Approx 70 years old this textile is handwoven from indigenous plant fiber. The fibers are supposed to "last forever" so jacket will "never show used"...The thread used for hand embroidery (mostly using cross stitch technique) appears to be cotton. Jacket would be worn open, the silver buttons are intended for decoration only. I also have the matching pants for the jacket, which also "live forever".Jacket is in excellant condition
