Superfine handmade embroidery on a Yao hilltribe textile collar.
The photo with the tape shows just how tiny the stitches are and closeups show how perfectly they have been laid!
Estimated to be from the early 1970s.
Dark Cotton base – has a backing
Note how closely the stitches have been placed!
And such exquisitely neat work is hard to find!
Tassels at the front.

This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
