Lao Tai Blanket
This wild and crazy blanket comprises two narrow panels of handspun cotton with supplementary weft designs in cotton and silk. The zany designs appear to be a sampler of weaving motifs, with each one done with a pattern repeat, but few repetitions of designs. Lighthearted and fun, this would be especially attractive used to decorate a child’s room. Condition is excellent; a handwoven hemp border and backing is a recent addition.
