Hmong Baby Carrier
This classic old Hmong baby carrier has seen some loving use, but is still appealing in its graphic details. Handsewn multiple, contrasting borders highlight two panels: the top one for behind the baby’s head, is decorated in applique and hot pink silk pompoms; the lower one is handdrawn batik with red appliqued designs. The outer frame of red cotton is soiled, but could be covered if framed. A backing of handspun indigo cotton provides strength and shows that this is not a recent piece.
Size: 31 in. x 19.5 in.
