$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

$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: 56c ...click for details

$400.USD 

Very fine and rare sarong from an Ibanic group on the island of Borneo. This was acquired from an old Dutch collection and the predominant motif (IMO) appears to be shrews or creeper vines in the central panel and bird and/or spiders on the side ikat panels. Most bidangs are only one panel and are worn as a skirt, but this one is three panels with two sungkit bands on the each outer panel and is a full length sarong which is quite unusual, in fact I cannot find any references on this ...click for details

Fine and rare Toraja, Sulawesi, seko mandi which would have been draped over a coffin possibly from Seko village. The Torajans have elaborate and often excessive burial rites (depending on the wealth or status) of the deceased and death does not have the grim connotations as it does in the West, the bodies are disinterred once a year washed, dressed and walked around the village. This piece has the classic sekong pattern consisting of interlocking hooks and has been interpreted a ...click for details
