Dulong Ethnic Blanket

Referred to as "Yueduo" in the Dulong ethnic language, blankets of this handmade kind are in fact coats worn by the Dulong ethnic members. It is deemed a symbol of Dulong ethnic costumes and is normally available in the market of Gongshan county seat, Nujiang Prefecture.

Dulong blankets are made from hemp barks, either wild or farmed. Dulong women are good at making them by twisting the hemp bark into threads and then dying with natural paints. Major colors on these blankets are usually red, yellow, black, and white. Tenacious and durable, they are normally used as protection from the rain and also as quilt covers.

The complicated making process of a Dulong blanket includes peeling hemp barks, warps lifting, weft insertion and battening etc, all by hand rather than machine.
