Antique Silk Textile Tin Sin Laos STL24


From Laos, this vintage silk textile, or tin sin, once adorned the bottom of a traditional tube skirt worn by the women of Laos. It was woven by the Tai-Dam hill tribe people of north-eastern Laos using hand spun cotton and embroidered with an intricate silk motif. The silk textile is between 50-70 years old and is in excellent condition, apart from minor loosening of some threads and stretching, consistent with age. The once bright colors are now pleasantly mellowed. It would make a charming runner or wall decoration.
