Models wearing traditional outfits associated with the Jinghpaw Hkahku group. Both outfits were commissioned by the Green Centre at the Brighton Museum (UK) which, in 2001, commissioned weavers in Kachin State to make 17 wedding outfits. The photo was taken at the Manau festival ground in Myitkyina by Htoi Awng 2002 . The man is wearing the new bag shown in the photo to the left below and with a detail in the photo to the right below. The new bag was based on an old bag which had been in Gwi Kai Nan's family for more than four generations. This bag shows similar designs to those on a 'Bag, Kachin, Jinghpaw Hkahku, northern Kachin State and Hukawng Valley' which was collected by James Henry Green during the 1920s and which is illustrated (page 164, Fig. 6.3.1.iv) in 'Textiles from Burma: Featuring the James Henry Green Collection' and edited by Elizabeth Dell and Sandra Dudley. See information on the web 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.
