Chinese Yi Ethnic Minority Embroidered Bride's Cock Hat
Please refer to our stock # TC243 when inquiring.
A bride of the Yi Chinese Ethnic Minority in Yunnan Province, would have worn the "cock" hat for her wedding day. The hat is made using layers of cotton fabric with a stiffiner between the layers to maintain the shape. Using colorful cotton thread, hat was extravagantly hand embroidered. A few traditional silver ornaments including the bubble, flower and butterfly were added.
Now, it is the very lucky Yi girl who can use her great grandmother's bridal hat for her own wedding. These hats are a prize for any minority textile collector.
