These two geometrical designs are almost the same. They are made with the add of an executed embroidery of the Miao. When you are going to recreate such a design you will end up with the design at the bottom. That's because the work looks exactly symmetrical. Looking closer you discover that the number of threads of the cloth are not the same in both directions. Remaking the design for even thread cloth isn't easy, but it can be done. The result is the first design.
