Hat for Yao Mien Girl
Probably from northern Thailand or possibly Laos, this lovely child’s hat is completely covered in cross-stitch embroidery in cotton and silk (the colors are richer than in the photos.). Ornamented with the typical large Yao pom poms, this was for a little girl. It’s become much more difficult to find clean examples of hats like this in good condition.
Size: 6 in. across x 5.5 in. high
