The Miao are a minority group that lives in the mountains of southern China where they continue their traditional way of living. Textiles play an important role in their culture as they have for thousands of years. Mothers pass their knowledge down to their daughters who keep the tradition going, although modernization is luring younger generations away from traditional village life to new urban lives.
Geometric patterns are hand-sewn with fastidious attention to detail - some more intricate than others. Often given as wedding gifts, these blankets are symbols of good luck and prosperity.
