Forest Green Geometric Bird Ceremonial Blanket

Regular price $798.00

Shamans in northeastern Laos and parts of Vietnam are known by the Tai Daeng to perform healing rituals that can chase out bad spirits and restore an ill person’s spirit in their body. The shaman wears a cermonial blanket or a healing cloth with symbols and motifs wildly woven into the cloth for the shaman to communicate with the ancestral spirits during a variety of healing rituals- from curing a physical injury, disease, or a mental illness to protecting a newly born baby or performing a fertility ceremony.

Ceremonial cloths such as this one are part of our PRESERVE COLLECTION because they are not produced as much as before. The collection was created to distinguish the finest woven pieces of all of our artisan weavers. 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bold Tai Lue geometric bird motif centers this ceremonial blanket in double-interlocked tapestry weave in navy blue, merlot, blue gray, and goldenrod. The end borders of double-headed crested naga in egg shell color are the dominant motif. Both borders uses the chok (discontinuous supplementary weft) weave technique, which requires each color be hand-picked into the weft. The ground warp in forest green gives the impression of birds flying around in trees. The ceremonial blanket is completed with flower tassels cut from silk worm cocoons.
