Songtao Miao embroidery

(A set of photos from an exhibition of Songtao Miao embroidery designs and showing how they are used on the costume)

Songtao Miao may be found in Songtao Miao Autonomous County, Tongren Prefecture in the eastern corner of Guizhou Province in southwest China. The photogallery below has been compiled from a group of photos sent in a zip file 'fushi 'without explanation - at least in English - accompanying somewhat cryptic information on the dates of Songtao Miao festivals. The photos appear to be of an exhibition of Songtao Miao embroidery designs and how they are used in the costume. (See Songtao Miao photogallery of the costume with its embroidery being worn at a festival.)

There are references to Songtao Miao with some photos in "Clothings and Ornaments of China's Miao People", Cultural Palace of Nationalities originally published by The Nationality Press in 1985 (p16-33) and also "A Picture Album of China's Miao Costumes and Ornaments" published by CIP in 2000 (p 212). The latter volume describes the Songtao costume style as being worn in Songtao County in Guizhou and in Xiushan of Chongquing City and Fenghuang, Mayang, Jishou, Huayuan and Baojing of Hunan Province. See the China bibliography for full details of both books.
