Name: Long Silk Love Tokens
We have a variety of motifs and colors of these delightful little cloths, all handwoven from village raised, hand reeled, naturally dyed silk. These "love tokens" were traditionally woven by young women and given to a young man they liked. The mythological creatures woven into the textiles would give him spiritual protection while away from the village (and his mom would see what a good weaver she is!). They are also used by families as "auspicious cloths" for the gift of cloth to important visitors. Please contact us for photos of our immediate inventory, and specify color and/or motif to help us match you with your ideal piece. These textiles often come with a photo of the weaver.
