Dao Ho people usually embroider the upper part of the vest first before carrying out with the rest of the vest. To make the vest more of a lavish display, they attach three arrowhead-shaped silver beads to the front line of the vest, followed by a line of three eight-petal silver flowers with pistils embossed.
The middle of the vest is filled with a larger sized eight-petal flower as a decisive pattern and the highlight of the vest. All the patterns on the vest is embroidered in blue and purple thread.
Dao Ho’s women usually wear white vests as undershirts with indigo dresses outside. The outer dresses are commonly unbuttoned to display the patterns of the inner vests which go absolutely prominently soothing with the indigo color outside.
