Description

A gorgeous uneven-rectangular fragment of an Indian Trade textile.

Superbly done complete flower present - that will make a superb framed artwork. Amazing blues! Fantastic fine handwoven cloth

Collected on a field visit to Toraja, Sulawesi.

This fragment has been saved from a fire - therefore has burn marks present. Holes and stains. Edges not even. This fragment is one of several sections that have been saved from the same fire-struck cloth.

25 cm x 57 cm
