Zhuang Heirloom Baby Blanket
Very unusual in coloration, this fine piece appears to have been woven in a soft brick red/peach cotton (maybe natural dye), with added, embroidered accents of light indigo, pale peach, and hot pink silk. Perhaps the accents were added later to an older blanket, as the blanket shows some slight wear and fading, but the accents do not. The overall design is subtle but attractive, with a frame of swastika meandering around a field of diamonds framed with running hooks. The accents pick up the light and enliven the surface nicely. Condition is quite good, with the exception of a 2.5″ repair at the bottom/center.
