Here is another piece I bought in southern Yunnan. If any of you have information please share it. It is a rectangular "scarf" but the ends look very similar to the pieces you all have helped me to identify as Naga.
Have you seen these before?

By the way, I was told this is Dai.

I see that the Dai are receiving attribution again - edwinooi's post! Is there a special premium to Dai?

At the risk of putting my foot in it I would hazard a guess that this could be Chin but I would not like to say which Chin group so not much help!

I will post a Dai temple banner later today. As far as Dai clothing it is extremely similar (or identical) to that found in Thailand among Thai people. Since its not my area of interest I can't speak with any authority but to the untrained outsider in Dai country you feel like you are in Thailand.

I should clarify my previous comment about the costume of the Dai. I believe there are several groups. The first and by far largest in terms of population lives in the valleys and lowlands around Xishuangbanna. They are relatively affluent and the women's dress and jewelry is very similar to Thai people.

One of the several sub groups is the Flower Dai. The first group of Dai does not recognize that the Flower Dai are Dai at all. They live in the hills and their costume looks very much like Miao people found in Eastern Yunnan.

There is a lot more to the story for the person who wants to research the subject.
