A beautiful indigo dyed single bed size cover with a central circle and butterflies
Made by the Bai minority near Dali in Yunnan, China. The traditional designs are first stitched onto the white cotton and the threads are drawn very tightly to make a resist. The tied up cloth is then immersed in indigo several times to achieve the deep dark blue. The stitches are taken out at the end and the white design remains. The designs are outlined with white stitches after that.
Wash by hand the first time and in the washing machine after that!
