Dao Quan Trang (Dao in white pants)

This is a casual kerchief of one of the many subgroups of the Dao people, living in the Vietnamese province of Yen Bai. It is worn on the head in a very strange fashion. In fact, it is entirely fixed on the back of the head and onto top of the head is thrown only one of the four corners, then they use extremely long laces to fasten it around the head. Actually, the white-pants Dao or Dao Quan Trang (that's how they are called by neighboring peoples, to distinguish them from other subgroups of the Dao) wear no white pants at all: on the photo you can notice that their costume is predominantly black.  Vietnam, Yen Bai.
