Old Naga Bodywrap Skirt
This is a ceremonial skirt from Nagaland, in the extreme NE of India. 66 x 38 inches. The
textile is handloomed cotton material with stripes and supplemental weft designs. It is four
loom-width strips sewn together lengthwise. The skirt is embellished with designs in cowrie
shells. The skirt is in good condition though it is dirty. Most of these Naga textiles I find are a
bit dirty from rough use. This is an excellent uncommon textile from a remote part of the world.
