Earthy stripes and vibrant accent colors decorate this antique Laotian textile creating a balanced visage that combines traditional motifs and exotic colors.
Textile, Laos, Early 20th Century – This charming antique Laotian textile features a traditional striped composition that is divided into distinct compartments. Radiant starbursts with dramatic rays and decorative fretwork embellishments fill the upper compartment, which is adorned with a splendid variety of decorative polychromatic motifs. Bold striped patterns separate the star spangled upper from the textural woven stripes that decorate the main portion of the composition. Earthy browns, vivid violet accents, neutral details and subdued red hues create a lively dance of colors, textures and patterns that produces an evocative pattern, which represents the culture and ethnic style of antique Laotian textiles perfectly.
