From Surin, in Isaan/NE Thailand, this beautiful weft ikat piece is richly-colored and has an unusual textural quality with wefts of nubby silk alternating with bands of smooth. It forms a lively, tho subtle pattern of bands on the surface, and makes the piece a little heavier. Cobalt blue stripes alternating with green enlivens the overall design. The weave is twill, which is typical of silks woven in this area, and in neighboring Cambodia. These beautiful silks are becoming much more difficult to find. Condition is excellent with no holes.
