Jpeg 34K A woven and embroidered mosquito net border sourced out of Lai Chau Province in northwest Vietnam and thought to be about 40 years old when bought in 2003. It may well come from Lai Chau and be of Black Thai (Tai Dam) origin. However, the embroidered and woven designs are similar to a detail from a Tai Daeng mosquito net decoration, upper Xam Nuea style, early 20th century shown on page 219 (fig 9.33) of Patricia Cheesman's book (2004) 'Lao-Tai Textiles: The Textiles of Xam Nuea and Muang Phuan'
