Southeast Asian
Indian Subcontinent
Southeast Asian : Folk Art : Primitive Works of Art : Pre 1980 item #1373501 (stock #4120)
Abhaya Asian Antiques
Pictorial men’s body cloth from the Naga, in Burma. I acquired this in Mae Sai, along the Thai/Burmese border in the late 90’s. All handspun cotton and mostly natural dyes- the embroidery may be a later add on, the blanket itself is supple and has had some use. This piece was probably made for the tourist market back then but with creative typical Naga designs. There are a few weak areas in the weave but no holes or tears. L: 170cm/66in and W: 107cm/42in.

Lao blanket, acquired in the Northern most province of Phongsaly, 2002, from a small local market. I was told it was Akha but am really not sure as I have no references on textiles from this group. This all hand woven with handspun thread except for the turquoise and possibly red the dyes are natural. L 180cm/70in and 100cm/39.5in. Nice heavy weave no damage.
