Exceptionally rare woman’s shoulder cloth from from the Khami, Khuni or Mro Chin subgroups living in the Rakhine and Chin states, west Myanmar. Woven from two ply handspun cotton there is minor bleeding of green dye (see last enlargement). Please note that the pattern is hand embroidered on one side only and not woven in. The dimensions are 1.5m/5.1ft x .38m/1.3ft. I have three books and Burmese textiles and there are no depicted examples of pictorial weaves. Circa 40 to 50 years old.
