The hem of the trousers legs is decorated with cross-stitched motifs, done by arranging equally-long cross stitches diagonally passing through the crossing points of the weft and warp threads. This technique is more often used for geometric patterns, and when it comes to the subject of animals, figures, or flowers, the motifs by this category would be very generalized and abstract, thus highly-decorative.
The Baiku Yao women are good at making exquisite motifs via cross stitch embroidery. Regarding the embellished hems of the trousers legs of this pair, cross-stitched motifs with reddish orange threads scatter all over the foundation of black cotton cloth, coupled with the “米”-shaped figures in black and white silk threads, constitute an eye-catching combination of refined decorative elements with auspicious meanings.
