Guest Book
Exceptionally rare woman’s shoulder cloth most likely from the Khami, Khuni or Mro Chin subgroups living in the Rakhine and Chin states, west Myanmar. Please note that the pattern is hand embroidered on one side only and not woven in, also most of the geometric woven patterns are unique with only a couple of repetitions. The dimensions are L: 123cm/63in x W: 34cm/13.5in. I have three books and Burmese textiles and there are no depicted examples of pictorial weaves. Circa 40 to 50 years old.
