Antique Yao Head Cloth – 3-D weaving!

A close look at the end-bands of this Yao Head cloth (or shoulder cloth) reveals a 3-Dimensional visual that has been created intentionally!

Worn by women on the head in a turban-like tie. The ends of the hand-spun cotton supplementary wefts have been left uncut for added effect and hang alongside the long fringe

A textile-art lover’s delight!
