This antique Huaxi baby carrier, made from sturdy cotton and silk, is unique and beautifully crafted with silk embroidery. This baby carrier is characterised by the cross-stitch embroidery on indigo dyed cotton. The ivory coloured patches, tinted with soft orange, give the baby carrier a slightly refined effect. It features geometric stylised flowers and grains of rice patterns.
These ethnic embroidered baby carriers from the Huaxi, a subtribe of the Miao, and other ethnic minorities from South West China. They are all unique and beautifully crafted pieces.
This Miao baby carrier is one our rare pieces and part of our Chinese textiles collection. It would make for a very special Christening gift.
Fabric: silk on cotton
