Ravishing Ceremonial Silk Textile from Laos
Rich traditional silk with superfine weaving that may be used as a personal style accessory or home decor accent.
Beautiful sober muted palette
Mythological motifs beautifully interwoven to create a dense pattern all over the textile.
The number of colors of supplementary silk thread used in the weaving composition directly impacts the complexity of the mechanics of weaving it – the more colors used the longer it takes to weave it. In this gorgeous textile 4 colors have been used all over the piece!
The silk is not easy to photograph perfectly – so do ask for more photos if in doubt.
Will be perfect as a wall hanging but was originally meant as a wrap / stole.
268 x 72 cm
Estimated to be from the 1960s-70s
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
