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 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.
