Shui Baby Carrier
Used by the Shui ethnic minority group in Guizhou Province, this elaborately embellished old baby carrier features couched silk embroidery, metal sequins, old silk ribbon and brocade silk on cotton and wool. These pieces are famous for the use of horse hair wrapped in silk for curved embellishments. Well-loved and used, but still very handsome, this beautiful old piece would display stunningly, with a richness of color, texture and pattern.
