The Miao are an ethnic minority group from the mountainous provenances of southern China. This textile is made from a vintage Miao wedding blanket. These wedding blankets were woven in cotton and silk by the bride and her family as a gift to the groom and his family. The brocades feature elaborate geometric motifs that require a high level of skill. Within Miao families, weaving is taught from mother to daughter. Once the daughter masters this complex craft, she is considered ready for marriage.

The woven textile is carefully applied to a linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This piece is offered in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.

Framed textiles are custom framed once they are ordered. Allow 4-6 weeks for framing and delivery. Expedited options may be available by emailing service@stfrank.com.
