Teal Spiky Naga Ceremonial Blanket


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 ceremonial 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

Spiky two-headed egg-shelled nagas replicate throughout this ceremonial blanket whilst another set of two-headed nagas hide amongst the colorful silkworms. Can you spot them? The complexity of the design, composed of rainbows of color representing the belly of the mythological hong bird, spiky nagas, and flowers requires the hand-picking of each color woven into the weft using the chok (discontinuous supplemental weft) technique. It is finished with flowers made from cut silk worm cocoons.
