Rare blanket from the Khami/Mro ethnic group, Burma. This is made from all handspun cotton and natural dyes and is quite unusual in that it is composed of 5 panels. There is one small hole (noted in enlargements) and moderate staining. L: 1.4m/4ft 7in. W: 1.9m/6ft 2in. I bought this in the late 1990s so at least pre 1980 vintage weaving.

Lao blanket, acquired in the Northern most province of Phongsaly, 2002, from a small local market. I was told it was Akha but am really not sure as I have no references on textiles from this group. This all hand woven with handspun thread except for the turquoise and possibly red the dyes are natural. L 180cm/70in and 100cm/39.5in. Nice heavy weave no damage.

110.00 Lovely vintage wearable woman’s dress from the Tai Dam ethnic group Vietnam. Made from all hand woven cotton cloth the, colorful silk embroidered wide bordered hem is particularly nice. Good condition, with a couple of fading streaks at the waist panel, but as this part was never meant to be shown when worn I would consider this negligible. W: 136cm/54in and L: 97cm/38in.
