  There was one story that we could tell from. The legend said that a child fell in a faint by the side of rice fields from the scorching sun one day, there flew a huge butterfly blocking the sunshine with its twin wings, and the little child was saved. After that, women embroidered butterflies and rice paddies on baby carriers, passing down from the old generation to the younger generation, thus it became the traditional motifs.
