These are a Pair of Magnificent Vintage Chinese Bai Hand Embroidered Silk Shoes from the Bai Women of the Yunnan Province in China. These shoes have dense layers of padding on the soles that would suggest that they are old. The embroidery style and colors are that of the Bai women's traditional shoes. The Bai people hold the color white in high esteem and call themselves the Baip people which literally means 'white people' in China. Their clothing, costumes and shoes all reflect the Bai symbols, the snow, the moon, the flower and the wind. Bai women are excellent embroiderers and proudly wear their traditional clothing. These beautiful shoes would compliment your collection or home.
