I recently acquired this in the hope of learning more about it. It was sold as a Karen blanket, but clearly it is a skirtcloth that has been opened up, and I'm not sure it is Karen. It comprises two cotton panels sewn together and oriented with the warp horizontal; the seam is carefully embellished with zigzag stitching; the seeds are placed in ornamental patterns, and all sewing is by hand. The soft colors could be from natural dyes. The most curious part is the woven pattern of diamonds in the warp, on alternating bands- the technique is not typically Karen, nor are the colors. Thoughts? Or might anyone have anything similar in their collections?

Hi Susan

What an interesting textile. Is it very faded? Is the reverse brighter? I am wondering about the original colour of the dyes. I love the, what I tend to refer to as, 'pineapple weave' - the diamond weave. A nice example. Interesting to see the different coloured warp stripe in the centre of each diamond. The seeds are nicely and finely applied. If there were no seeds I don't think it would have come with any Karen attribution and I certainly don't feel that they make in Karen who, I think, usually use the seeds on their blouses. I don't recall seeing this more complex weave in Karen textiles and I don't think it suits their looms?

Will be a nice one to trawl for in the literature (or collections/experience).

A nice example to share with us - thanks!

Hi Susan,

I like the piece. I think it is from one of the Chin group tribes. They certainly have the technique to do it, which the Karen really don't. I think you have to backtrack such a piece to see who in Northern Burma has the technique in their repertoire.
