Rare Northern Chin, Tashon subgroup, Falam Township, woman’s, ceremonial, embroidered skirt circa 50 to 80 years old, Chin State, Burma. All hand woven in two panels with a silk warp and cotton weft, and natural dye. There is some minor fading in a few places (doesn't look in real life as the photos indicate) but the condition and quality of the cloth is outstanding. Chin textiles are much under appreciated in the West due to the remoteness of their region as well as the subtle patterns which seem simple but are technically some of the most complex and intricate of any ethnic group in the world. W: 104cm/43in and L: 170cm/67in.
