Possibly from Tai people in Nghe An Province in Vietnam, this attractive style of tubeskirt has become popular in Laos and is also woven there. Nicely rendered medallions representing flowers alternate with handsome vertical bands in the overall design in silk with cotton. A new hemband in silk and cotton and a waistband of indigo cotton complement the body of the skirt. (Please see Lao-Tai Textiles, p.140. #6.61). In excellent condition, this is very wearable.
