Warm gray, white stripe, natural organic dye cotton, handwoven tribal textile, Karen Hmong fabric, Thai ethnic throw MQ88

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 41 inches long x 24 inches wide 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.
