Embroidered Back Vest with Beads

This one-of-a-kind vintage vest from a Chinese Minority tribe is packing some real personality.  It bears not only remarkably colorful and delicate cross-stitching all across the back, but also a small fiesta of coins, beads, seeds and shells as ornamentation.  A handsome cinnamon-colored linen falls beautifully as it frames the neck and contrasts with the dark-as-black indigo cotton body.  A piece to treasure and admire.  Why not hang it up on the wall as a piece of art, when not in use?  That's what we'd do.
