Vintage/antique, in situ, sleeve panels from the Miao ethnic minority in Guizhou. This date from about 40 to 80 years old; please bear in mind, the ability to do this kind of work has pretty much died out as the economic development in Chinese has caused most young women in the villages to move to the city for better employment opportunities. Textiles still play an important part in Miao life but much of what is produced today is done by machine rather than hand. 39cm/15.4in x 33cm/13in. These were purchased in Beijing in the 1990s from Miao vendors. Free shipping Hong Registered Airmail included with purchase price.
