Old Mizoram Indian Dancing Skirt
T
his is an old ceremonial dancing skirt from the extreme NE of India near the Burmese
border, perhaps the Mizoram region. 52 x 34 inches. The skirt has a fabulous
discontinuous supplemental warp design on a field of blue-black (indigo), burgundy,
sky blue, grean and yellow stripes (see closeup photos of the fine design). The weave
is a relatively fine. The material is cotton. The  bangles are made of seeds, red
beads, and long brass pipe beads. Many of the bangles are there, but some are
missing or incomplete. The textile portion is in excellent condition with superlative
colors. The top most deep blue section appears somewhat dirty in the photos, but I
think it’s more where the indigo fabric has rubbed together, but it may be dirt. This is
an excellent uncommon textile from a remote part of the world that will be a great
addition to any collection. SOLD
