Pamela,

I salute you. You are our number one ace on tribal textiles, although we all know that anyway.

So as the fog turns the Bay Area into a very damp, windy place, I now proceed to take a break fom writing a lecture about Vygotski's theory of mind, to comment on some of the questions:

1. The Li of Hainan and the Arakanese of Burma divide the textile space into narrow weft stripes, which are filled with random and simple patterns.

4. You're right, it's the western India patola, which has influenced courtly dress and exchange clothes throughout SEAsia, for at least two hundred years.

7. The weft is larger, and the Khmer loom is also set up for twill effects.

9. South Sumatra, Hainan, and the Dong in South China.

10. For conservative weaving cultures throughout SEAsia, where, for example, weft size has remained the same for centuries, to have welcomed aniline dyes
so quickly and universally is a very interesting development.

thanks to all,

Sandie

HI Sandra,
As a newcomer here, delighted to find an alternative to the now defunct Googe Answers, especially a site on textiles, I've dredged even older questions for entertainment.

From what I learned in Burma, Sandra was correct on no. 6: some Buddhists eshew silk because the worms in the cacoons have to be killed.

No. 10, aniline dyes:
They were and are just too easy to use. I expect that you know something about natural dyes: the source materials having to be gathered, dyestuffs and mordants extracted, etc., etc. Early aniline dyes looked like a cheap and quick fix, but they didn't "fix", fading, running ... In 19th century Persia, the death penalty was instituted for use of aniline dyes. In some areas - like Turkey - the people were delighted by the gaudy colors that were possible, however.

You might be interested in Harald Boehmer's book on natural dyes, "Koekboya", which discusses and describes many types of natural dyes used around the world.

Cheers, Larry
