Name: 2-Headed Hong Shoulder Cloth
Bright forest-y, naturally-dyed green offsets the sharp white and bright golds, reds, and blues of this traditional woman's shoulder cloth woven for wearing to temple. The primary pattern is diamonds of flowers, with two-headed hong birds (mythological birds who's bellies are the rainbow), and vertical borders of eight-pointed stars. This handwoven, naturally-dyed, hand-reeled silk cloth comes with a photo of its dyer and designer wearing the textile.
