Ethnic pillow supply cotton tribal textile Karen Hmong fabric ethnic hill tribe Thai throw brown tan black stripe boho tunic decor CF77
This is a hand made fabric by the Karen or Karian ethnic group of Thailand and Burma. It is hand woven on a traditional back-strap loom with cotton colored using natural, organic, vegetable dyes. This is a more expensive and time-consuming process than using chemical dyes but results in the enchanting character and soft hues of the colors you see in the photos.
Because of the narrow size of a back-strap loom (narrow to fit the size of the weavers back), the fabric width is correspondingly narrow and this shirt/tunic is constructed of two separate lengths of fabric, folded over at the shoulder of the garment and hand sewn together both on the sides and in the middle front and back. You may of course wear it as a tunic…or it can be re-purposed into cushions, bags, table runners, throws, etc...
The dimensions are 26 inches in length x 24 in width per side and without the fringe. The item is new but some anomalies and aberrations in handwoven, jungle village items are normal and should be expected.
It has been de-saturated and over-dyed, allowing for its unusual and alluring color.
See our Policies section for a very few shipping exceptions such as countries in Africa or Remote Service Zones (mountains, islands, etc…).
Items can be returned to our US address.
