The condition is unused and the age fairly recent. There will be some characteristic aberrations in the 100% silk weaving, testament to the handmade weaving, and inescapable in rural, village-woven textiles.
No polyester or nylon masquerading as silk! This is 100% Laos, hand-spun silk, made from boiling silk worm cocoons. The silk cocoons unravel in the boiling water and a varying number of the strands are fished out of the pot and pulled together as a single thread or yarn. This thread then has to be spun on to a bobbin of sorts to organize it before being dyed. Only after the tedious dyeing process (all natural colorings and done by hand) can the loom be set up and the Laos textile woven. The internet has plenty of videos showcasing this process.
Both sides of the textile can be used as fronts per your personal preference.
The dimensions are 64 in x 14 in without the fringe.
This is a handwoven and hand embroidered textile. Please expect normal telltale signs of the human textile artist (aberrations in the weaving and embroidery)! Who wants perfect machine made?? This is why we love handmade!
