Finely woven and comprising two panels joined down the center lengthwise, this weaving is probably from a Chin group in Burma, tho we’re not sure. In new condition, the weaving is skillful and the colors pleasing. Even if it is recent production, it was clearly made carefully by a skilled artisan. The threads are commercial and of fine cotton, but the colors could be natural, especially the mauve/beige bands and the dark indigo- we’re not sure about the red or the yellow. The horizontal decorative motifs are supplementary weft and remind us of Laytu weavings. The ends are nicely finished with braided and knotted fringe and a decorative border of alternating black and red lines. This is a lovely example of high quality modern handweaving.
Size: 64″ (excl. fringe) x 44.5″
