Navy Blue Spiky Naga Ceremonial Blanket

Regular price $895.00

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

The complexity of the design is astounding! It is composed of multiple depictions of the naga, which requires the hand-picking of each color woven into the weft using the chok (discontinuous supplemental weft) technique on navy blue ground. Rainbows of color in blue, yellow, red, and green, representing the belly of the mythological hong bird, and flowers separate and delineate the complex twisting of naga throughout this piece. Finished with flowers made from cut silk worm cocoons.

Size: Approximately 89.5" x 30" (35" including tassels)

Handwoven in Houaphanh, Laos
