Exceptionally fine wedding blanket from the Zhuang ethnic group from Guizhou/Guangxi Zhuang China. This has a floss silk supplementary weft against on a 5 handspun threads per millimeter backing. This is an heirloom piece 30 to 50 years old in perfect condition with no fading or wear. It is worth noting this kind of workmanship is no longer being done in China as most young women will go to the cities to find employment rather than hang around the village and produce these. L: 147cm/48in and W: 10cm/40in.
