Very fine old wool pangden cloth- all hand spun wool and mostly natural dyes. This piece is an exceptionally large piece consisting of 5 panels, circa 40 to 50 years old. The weave is quite tight and heavy and would make an excellent small blanket or throw rug. In the past these were worn by married women, but these days they are a fashion accoutrement for the modern Tibetan girl. This piece is in excellent condition with intact selvedges, no tears (one teeny tiny hole noted in last enlargement). With the advent of machine made polyester textiles these are hardly being made any more. D: 71cm/28in and W: 71cm/28in.
