This lightweight cotton shirt dress is trimmed with a black diamond-patterned silk trim.
It is made from a basic hand-woven cotton fabric that can be found in the homes of every ethnic minority in Guizhou province. Our version was made on the traditional Dong loom in our training program worship in Dimen Village. Due to the fine thread and gentle touch required to maintain its lightweight hand, it takes an entire day to weave 3 meters of narrow-width fabric (40 cm wide).
The traditional motif belt is hand-woven on the same type of loom by the local villagers.
