This piece is circa 1950-1960, spun from commercial, hand dyed cotton thread with some single faced supplementary and diamond twill patterns. Please see enlargements to appreciate the complexity of this weave. There are a few pin holes but noting egregious (one small repair with rice grain for scale). L: 180cm/70in and W: 104cm/40in. See last enlargement for reference.
