Silk: Skirts and Other Textiles - Spring Green Diamonds of Naga
Name: Spring Green Diamonds of Naga
Woven of village-raised, hand-reeled, naturally dyed, handwoven silk, this textile takes the traditional motifs of the Lao Loum and Tai Daeng people and puts a simple twist on the overall design. Unlike the traditional textiles that tend to fill the "space", this piece leaves solid background deep blue areas that beautifully offset the spring green diamonds of naga parading up the middle of this lovely shawl. The textile comes with a photo of the natural dyer and designer wearing the piece.
Size: 15" x 79"
Origins: Houaphanh Province, Laos
