Name: Tapestry Weave Healing Cloth
Souk designed this healing cloth with the center section filled with water pattern tapestry weave. There are three rows of discontinuous supplemental weft patterning bordering the tapestry weave section: one large section of two-headed naga (mythological river serpents) and phii nak (the extremely fierce mythological giant spirits), framed by two rows of saang hong (mythological elephant birds) pregnant with naga. A photo of the natural dyer and designer wearing this textile comes with the purchase of this hand-reeled silk, handwoven, naturally dyed textile.
