Lao Tai Tubeskirt
From the Lao Khrang and possibly 80 years old, this lovely tubeskirt is of very soft silk, with the designs of ikat/mud mee alternating with stripes of twisted threads. The rich, lac-dyed reds are harmoniously contrasted with a soft celadon green, which is emphasized with a darker band across the top of the skirt body. A more recent red cotton hemband is embellished with warp-patterned motifs and stripes. Condition is very good, with two repaired holes on one side (see detail). This is a rare find.
Size: 55.5 in. x 32 in.
