Vintage Silk Doves of Peace Embroidery STL30

$195.00

This rare silk woven textile with embroidery is from Southern Laos. We have never before encountered a vintage tin sin silk weaving with embroidered doves kissing amidst flowering vines. This style of textile known in Laos as tin sin once adorned the bottom of a traditional tube skirt worn by Laotian women.

An intricate twin dove motif in red silk is embroidered over a hand spun cotton backing. The level of detail is exceptional. It is between 50-60 years old and in good condition for its age with expected loose threads, threadbare patches, minor stains, and fading. This charming old silk textile offers a message of peace and lends itself well to being framed as a unique artifact from a bygone era.
