The Chin are a tribal, mountain dwelling people found in the highlands of north-west Burma. They have a long tradition of weaving magnificent hand woven 100% cotton textiles using the back strap method on a yakan loom. This piece was colored using German chemical dyes resistant to fading. The Chin are widely admired for their unique designs and superior weaving skills. Traditionally, these textiles are worn over the shoulders, but they make exotic table and bed runners.
