Jpeg 59K From Xam Tai, detail of an unusual mosquito net border (now in the collection of Pamela Cross) which is a lovely shade of brown, with accents of purple, gold and yellow. It is unusual because of the design motifs: elongated, stylized star motifs with arrows; also present in a few places are stylized animal motifs and figures with up-raised hands. One end is a dark red (as shown in the detail above) rather than brown. It is all handspun cotton (or perhaps fine hemp?) with cotton and some silk supplementary weft. Condition is very good, tho there are soiled areas throughout. Size: 274" (22'-10") x 9.5"
