This is a vintage fiber skirt, possibly from Papua New Guinea, I have seen similar palm fiber and banana fiber grass skirts from this area. This is a vintage ethnographic textile, with beautiful look to it. It is hand woven along the top band with contrasting colours. The darker fibers, are buried in the ground. It has a loop, and tie to attach it, and has two levels, of length, and decorative weaving on the front. The main body measures 25 inches across, and 21 inches long. The woven tie extends 6 1/2 inches.
