Miao Baby Carriers Collection
Information: www.miaobabycarriers.com

"An extensive (4000+) collection of vintage Chinese baby carrier embroideries, a sampling of which can be viewed online at www.miaobabycarriers.com. The collection is available (at no cost) for study or display to interested students, teachers, and authors. These wonderful handmade artifacts are an enormously rich ethnographic and aesthetic resource, and they would make an ideal subject for a book or research project. Created primarily during the early to mid-20th century, these baby carriers were hand-sewn by the women of the minority cultures (e.g. Miao/Hmong, Dong) of the Southern Chinese provinces, in a tradition that is rapidly disappearing." Mark Clayton, Long Beach, California, USA.
