The Mind-Boggling Diversity of Textiles in SW China Posted on 17 Sep 02:39

I can't make any more promises about upcoming straps because I've already promised too much. Once I finish production on the straps for the Yi and Bai ethnic groups, I will consider working with a few of these beauties from various regions in Guizhou Province. Until then, enjoy the sheer beauty of these hand embroidered textiles which I spied at the street side stalls in Dali.

This last piece, which combines some incredibly fine cross-stitch (十字绣 shizixiu) with bold geometric appliqué ended up in my personal collection. Couldn't resist!
