This Jingpho bag is shown in Michael C Howard's book 'Textiles of the Hilltribes of Burma' (1999: page 163 Plate 120.) The bag itself is in the Bankfield Museum, Halifax (UK) collection and was originally lent to the Museum in 1900 by E.C.S.George and subsequently given to them by him in 1937. The description of the bag (p117 in Dr Howard's book) is: 'Jingpho: 120. N'hpye (shoulder bag), plaited cotton strap, body mde of plain white cotton warp thread with the weft made of various colors and including some patterning near near the top of the bag, body 26cm x 32cm. R A Innes on page 19 of 'Costumes of Upper Burma and the Shan States in the collections of the Bankfield Museum Halifax, 1957, reports that, according to E.R. Leach, such bags with plaited straps "probably came from the Maru or Lashi region which lies between the N'mai Hka river and the Yunnan border." (BM:GK1).
