Eyieng Woman's Skirt 11016
Rade, Central Highlands, Vietnam
Cotton; complimentary warp patterning
Pre Vietnam War, circa 1930-40
70 x 57 in/178 x 145 cm 

This textile was the finest I collected on a solo expedition to the Highlands in 1993. This piece was unique for being ultra fine handspun and all natural dyes. The wrap around skirt has great aesthetic affinities with the striped Aymara weavings of Bolivia and first phase Navajo blankets.
