Luscious raw silk double sided “lungsema” kira from the Tashigang area, Bhutan. The palette on this piece is subdued yet exuberant with 9 different kinds of auspicious symbols embroidered and over a 100 lines of color (I lost count). It is in excellent condtion with little sign of wear (these are usually frayed a bit on the edge that drags the ground). There is one stain which should clean out if sent to a dry cleaner. Best one I have had to date. L: 2.6m/102in and W: 1.4m/55in. 1.75 kilograms of raw silk went into weaving this!
