92" x 40" 100% Heavy Raw Silk Ikot or Mudmee Handwoven Shawl or Coverlet by Naiyanee Srikanthimarak. Typically woven by Isan villagers, Naiyanne is unusual as a city dweller who fell in love with Thai folk fabrics. She was inspired to weave a much heavier fabric. She apprenticed intensively for three months in the villages, eventually being taken in as a "daughter". The result is silk mudmee that is soft ot the touch & warm enough to be used as a blanket.
I have been lucky to become her good friend. She has visited me here in the Northwest when she was on her way to the Weaver's Convergence show in San Francisco. She is as delightful as her fabrics.
This gorgeous piece is a one of a kind beauty.
