Old Textile from Bhutan, known as kushu bundri, used as a cloth for wrapping and carrying
Thunder Dragon," the author describes a similar example: "An auspicious swastika decorates
this bundri for wrapping bundles. The textile is woven as a long panel cut into three equal
lengths joined together in the warp direction; the ends are hemmed and cloth ties attached at
the corners  . . .  notice how the half-diamond motifs are carefully aligned to meet at the seams
of the panels." (p. 137). This textile is in excellent condition. The only condition issue is a dark
inch-square stain visible in the center of the textile (some kind of resin).
