Many thanks, Bill, for your generous comments.

I have a general request to forum members and browsers. If you have a Jingpho/Jingpaw/Singpo bag in your collection please would you share a photo with us and also agree that I can add it to the photogallery? (Browsers, you will need to join the forum as a member to do this - a very easy task. Shout for help if you have any problems with the photo posting procedure.) If you post a photo would you please give us as much information as you have - when, where you bought it and any information which you received on it at the time. Whilst, if it has been bought from a dealer, the information may be suspect as it cannot be directly verified, it is always interesting to know.

If you find any similar bags in museums do let us know. If you can get permission to share a photo with us that would be excellent - especially if there is good background on the item. The same goes for photos in books but we do need to have permission from the photographer/author/publisher to post.

I think that these bags are fascinating weaving gems and it is a priviledge to assemble a virtual collection!

Very many thanks.

The second bag which I will post below is more intricately woven and closer to the style of the one which Bill originally posted. My attention has been drawn to an unusual addition in the weaving - that of the incorporation of the body of some light-reflective insect body parts which are woven into the body of the bag. Digna is unsure which insect has been used but has been told that it is both moth and firefly. See the detail and close up shots below. Has anyone heard of any similar incorporation of an insect body into a textile?

Probably the bag was made for a chief since the complexity of the weaving was usually reserved for bags of important people. ("The dragon motif, one of the most difficult patterns to weave, represents Baren Num Raw in Jinghpaw mythology, and is a symbol of duwa (chief) status. Royal Pavilion, Libraries & Museums (Brighton in "Textiles from Burma") - See comments on this complex weaving previously on this thread.)

My thanks to Digna for permission to share these photos and enhance our study of these fascinating bags. I invite anyone who has a Kachin bag (or can point - with the relevant permissions - to one in another collection) to post photos and share any information which they have on the textile to add to our virtual 'collection'.

I will confirm on this thread when I have updated the photogallery of the bags on the main tribaltextiles.info site.
