          Bainiaoyi, or hundred-bird costume, is mostly worn by the Miao people living in Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, SW China's Guizhou Province. The costume is decorated with celebrated Miao embroidery, a craft that has been listed as one of the national intangible cultural heritages. It has diversified colors and unique patterns and has been known as the wearable epic of Miao nationality.

          Songlong village in Danzhai county is a branch of Ganao Miao nationality and has been famous for Bainiaoyi. "Ganao" in the Miao language means "tribe of birds". For them, the costume is a representation of their migration history throughout history, a witness of local textile culture, and a living fossil of Miao farming civilization.

          As a general term for festival attires, Bainiaoyi is called "Ouhuayong" for men and "Ouhuanao" for women in the Miao language. Ouhuayong is mostly decorated with the abstracted patterns of ox&dragon or snake&dragon, while Ouhuanao features bainiao(birds) patterns. "Bai" means one hundred, but it is only an approximate number——that is, the number of birds embroidered on the clothes is not necessarily over one hundred; "niao", which means birds, here generally refers to various flying objects, such as butterflies.


          Bainiaoyi's patterns of butterflies, birds, fish, flowers, and dragons have all been abstracted from natural objects. Miao people venerate nature, so they embroider these patterns on clothes to repose their sincere and positive outlook on life and convey the ideas of mutual respect, coexistence, equality, and harmony between mankind and nature.
