Lao Tai Blanket
Finely woven of handspun cotton thread, this handsome blanket is from Muang Vaen, an area famous for skillful weaving in Xam Nuea. It comprises two panels with a newly-added handwoven natural hemp backing and border. The natural and black thread on this one is especially fine and allows more intricate detail as can be seen in the various diamond motifs and their concentric outlines. The motifs match quite well at the center seam making a pleasingly graphic composition. Condition is excellent.
Size: 71 in. x 36 in. overall / 60 in. x 25 in. without border
