A long batiked banner made by women in Wuji village in Guizhou Province, south western China. Natural indigo dyes.
The banners are used at festivals which celebrate and remember the ancestors. These are held by each village once every 13 years. The banners are carried on tall bamboo poles and taken in procession around the village. For more on these indigo banners, have a look at my blog "Banners, baby carriers and printed batik!"
Great for use as a totally unique table runner!
