Bonding via Baby Carriers: The Art and Soul of the Miao and Dong

In Chinese, English and Japanese. This beautiful, lavishly illustrated book examines a waning tradition among the women of Southwest China. From Eric Lin's introduction: "For southwestern Chinese minorities, baby carriers are not only charged with a very unique emotional message, but the entire process of raising silkworms, producing silk, embroidery, patchwork, dyeing and design is extremely refined and carries a flare to it that is all its own. The most important point is that baby carriers were not just a means through which women stitched and displayed their love for their children...One could say that these works were an artistic representation of each woman's individuality and creativity."
