Two Yao/Mien garments (one men’s vest and woman’s long sleeved jacket). These are made from all hand spun and woven indigo dyed cotton thread with original silver alloy buttons. Very wearable with black linings, please see enlargements for dimensions (please email if want more specific measurements). I found these in the Golden Triangle region of Thailand recently, and they were in pretty sad shape so I had them repaired and washed and they came out looking quite nice. The men’s vest has large repair in the back (noted in enlargements) and the woman’s jacket has button missing at the bottom. These are probably around 50 years old.
