163 Antique Ceremonial Shoulder / Loin Cloth with Beaded Weaving


Gorgeous textile with the white beads looking stunning against the indigo and red cloth!

This is one of the tribal textiles that I acquired early in my collecting days that made me fall in love with the aesthetics of old tribal textile art.

Used as a wrap over the shoulders, waist & loin.

Note the abrash on the fringes.

The glass beads have been woven (not embroidered) into the textiles

From the Hilltribes of the Golden Triangle (Sapa, Vietnam or Katu, Laos)

Estimated to be from the early 1900s


MEASUREMENT : 84cm x 31cm (not including fringes)
