Detail of a new man's bag, Jinghpaw Hkahku, woven by Gwi Kai Nan in Myitkyina, 2002. This was commissioned by the Green Centre at the Brighton Museum (UK) which, in 2001, commissioned weavers in Kachin State to make 17 wedding outfits. 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 the bag being worn in the image to the right below. 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 information and material on this bag on the Brighton and Hove Museums' Collections website.
See discussion on the origin of this and other similar bags at the bottom of the photogallery page.
