China Coast Couture offers a Dong tribal gown from Guizhou Province, China. This is a silk thread embroidery depicting dragons together with pearl, flame, lingxi, scroll and keyfret motifs, on a black cotton fabric that has been "leathered" (treated with certain coatings and beaten) to make it water repellant and to give it a shiny surface. The coat is in fine condition. Age is assumed to be between 40 and sixty years. This Chinese ethnic minority coat is a great decorative piece but it also makes a fabulous fashion statement.
