Maroon Silk Pha Tung from Laos | Wallhanging
A beautiful, long fine silk wallhanging from Laos with five different coloured squares set inside a maroon background.
Finished with red tassels. The coloured squares are pale blues, ivory and peach but being woven in the shot silk technique the colours shift in tone as you view from different angles.
Hand-woven and dyed with local natural dyes in the town of Luang Prabang in central Laos. Pha Tung are prayer flags woven for the Buddhist New Year. Many women in this region have a loom in the garden or work under a communal awning where they would weave the Pha Tung.
Dimensions: 48x250cm exc tassels
