This bag is in the James Henry Green Collection, Royal Pavilion, Libraries & Museums, Brighton. The bag was collected by Green in the 1920s and is Kachin, Jinghpaw Khahku, northern Kachin State and Hukawng Valley. It shows the same designs as those on an heirloom bag used by Hkahku weaver Gwi Kai Nan as her source for the new Museum commissioned bag - see photo of the two bags. The bag above is shown on page 164 in 'Textiles from Burma: Featuring the James Henry Green Collection' and edited by Elizabeth Dell and Sandra Dudley. See information on the James Green Gallery of World Art including a nice outline on James Green. A Kachin textiles link on that page gives further information about the project referred to above to create new (Kachin) textiles.
See discussion on the origin of this and other similar bags at the bottom of the photogallery page.
