Antique Bhutanese Fabric
Antique supplemental warp handloom-woven fabric from Bhutan, made from cotton. The book,
From the Land of the Thunder Dragon says these fabrics are "a time honored gift for many
Bhutanese occasions," such as promotions, marriages, and deaths, "when textile gifts (zong or
zongcha) are given in an odd-numbered set of three, five, seven, nine, or more." 84 x 47
inches. The damage is apparent -- holes and frayed edges -- but it's still quite lovely and has a
nice handle. $200
