Rusty and Crista Hippchen visited Laos and China in February 2003. They bought this collection of Hani textiles direct from Hani traders in Menghai county, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, the southern-most prefecture in Yunnan Province, southwest China. Most of the clothing items were being worn at the time of purchase and so represent current Hani (Akha) clothing fashions in the area. See Hani (Akha) references.
