Lao Tai Blanket
This old Lao-Tai blanket is an attractive example of the rustic indigo and natural cotton blankets from the hills of Laos. Two bands of diamond motifs alternate vertically to form a lively pattern. With the backing and borders removed one can see the richness of the handspun threads. The color variations of the indigo (abrash) indicate different dye lots in the production process and are not as obvious in person. There is wear, and some thin areas, as this is an old piece and it is priced accordingly.
