From the Collection - Child's top from northern Thailand

We bought this in Mae Hong Son, up in the Golden Triangle part of Thailand (near the Chinese & Burmese borders).  I'm not sure, but I think it's from the Lisu Hill Tribe, mostly because of the style of embroidery.  It's a great example of the care & expertise that goes into children's clothing.  Another thing, which you can't tell, is that the silver beads have little stones (or something) in them, so they make noise when the child is running.  Much less irritating than those children's sneakers that flash or beep each time a little boy or girl takes a step in the western world!
