~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ $320.USD 

Very fine ikat and embroidered patterned men’s sarong from Timor Island. The weaving is in three panels on this piece and is exceptionally fine and supple. In excellent condition with a few minor frays on the selvedge only and a few small ink stains. Although by no means an antique, this is a genuine “cultural” item and not made for the “tourist market”- a realistic dating would be between 40 and 60 years old. The embroidery (which is finished on both sides) is done with silk an ...click for details

$400.USD 

Beautiful women’s skirt from the Bahnar (Ba Na) ethnic group from the Central Highlands of Vietnam, woven from fine handspun cotton using all natural dyes. The weaving is very intricate and refined, note the use of narrow warp ikat bands throughout this piece. This piece is in perfect condition and dates to 1960 to 1970. The center panel is stitched loosely at the top as it was meant to be used as a pocket. Google Bahnar Bob Mc Kerrow to view photos of women wearing this kind of ...click for details

~Sold to Sweden~ $1100.USD 

Beautiful and intriguing Sumba men’s hinggi tunic with rare “pagi- sore” morning-afternoon design. Most hingis will mirror each other in their design at the top and bottom but this one presents us with one single picture. Incorporated into the pattern are horses which are typical wealth symbols with the Sumbanese as well as “sacred crocodiles” and lobsters. The image of the crowned woman is a hold over from the colonial era as it represents queen Wilhelmina of Holland, also present are t ...click for details

$280.USD 

Very rare man’s ceremonial tunic from the Chin ethnic group, probably Falam Township, Chin State Myanmar. I would consider this an antique heirloom blanket between 1910-1940 finely woven from hand spun cotton thread and natural dyes. This incorporates the classic Chin diamond twill weft pattern as well as double side embroidery. This still has traces of the original and embroidery portions of the selvedge side are missing (I am guessing approx 15cm/6in) - W: 128cm/50.5in and L; 189 ...click for details

~Sold to Japan, domo arigato!~ $530.USD 

Nice woman’s dress from Bhutan with yellow and white “aikapur” brocade pattern. Made from all raw silk in good condition although the bottom edge where it would have dragged along the ground has some minor fraying note in enlargements. I acquired this in Bhutan in 1996 from a little old lady sitting along the trail to Tiger’s Nest, Paro Taktsang before it burnt down. This was already old at the time so I will date circa 1960 (ish). L324cm/92in and W: 120cm/51in.

$220.USD 

Classic semi antique Laotian textile from the Tai Daeng ethnic group. This was acquired in 1991, just when Lao was opening itself for tourism and was about 30 years old at the time so this would date pre Vietnam War era. It is mounted onto a commercial Chinese chintz cloth border (looks original), made from all hand spun cotton and silk thread in the embroidery (except for the black pattern). There is one small repair noted in enlargements. L: 148/58.2in x W: 144cm/17.2in (without b ...click for details

~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ $350.USD 

Fine and rare old hand spun and woven cotton textile from Luang Prabang, Laos with a powerful representation of a tiger and monkey with various symbols and key fret side borders. Comparing the dyes (note the well toned silk threads in last enlargement) to other dated Vietnam War era pieces, I saw during a recent visit, I would put this piece to at least 60 years or older. Excellent condition and mounted on a contemporary handwoven cotton backing and border. L: 128cm/51in and H: 56cm/ ...click for details
