Textile Wall Decoration Handwoven Laos Supplementary Weft - $449 (Asheville)

Beautiful piece I picked up in Laos long ago. Northern Laos, this is a “pha bieng” shoulder sash. It's meticulously handwoven on wooden looms. The technique is known as supplementary weft in which the motifs are added as a supplement on top of the weave of the body of the cloth. Each separate color must be started and stopped with a small knot.
