I thought you might like to see an example of a ceremonial tube skirt , which I was informed was from Laos. It is apparently from one of the little known Mon-Khmer speaking groups, similar to those of the central highlands of Vietnam.

Further information about these textiles on the Laos side of the border would be very welcome, as references appears very scanty. Does anyone know of any photos showing such textiles being worn?

see below for photo of textile, other side and detail

Hi Siriol-
Interesting piece. You might be interested in some that I posted long ago on another thread (one pertaining to writing on textiles): http://www.tribaltextiles.info/community/viewtopic.php?t=246&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
Unfortunately, there is no information out there that I recall, or have found, on the people who made these. Michael Howard's book on textiles from the Central Highlands of Vietnam might be the closest, but I am away from my library now and cannot check. I, too, would love to know more about these pieces.

Ah, yes, Susan. Indeed another similar tube skirt.

When we visited Ron Simpson and Siriol bought this skirt he showed us a book which you might be able to find in Thailand - I have not been able to find it on the web and it had no ISBN number. It is published in Thailand or Laos and I think that Ron bought his copy there (as he spends 5 months in CM and 7 in London). The book is 'Sinh & Lao Women' by Viengkham Nanthavongdouangry (my writing is hard to read where I scribbled the details so the author's name may be incorrectly spelt) and published by Phaeng Mai Gallery in 2006, DOKKED Design and Publishing Co Ltd. In the book was a similar tube skirt and the book said:
Quote:
"Ngae in Sakong province, water buffalo and flowers...(worn for the) annual Kin eat festival".
The book was in both English and Thai or Lao.
