Very rare woman’s blanket from the Tiddim speaking, Northern Chin ethnic group who live in the Chin State, Burma next to India. This piece is circa 1950-1960, spun from commercial, hand dyed cotton thread with some single faced supplementary and diamond twill patterns. Please see enlargements to appreciate the complexity of this weave. There are a few small holes but noting egregious- obviously of interest to the specialist collector. L: 164cm/64.5in and W: 101cm/39.8in. See last enlargement for reference.
