This group of textiles features examples from Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. It includes articles of clothing, baby carrier panels, purses, blankets and other utilitarian pieces which were made for personal use, not commercial sale. Primarily made of silk and/or cotton, these pieces were made using various techniques including ikat, supplementary weft and batik, as well as a wide variety of embroidery. When possible, we try to select older pieces in good condition, of aesthetic interest as well as ethnographic importance, and especially those utilizing natural dyes.
