Collectors might want to read more about this great textile: Description of the Mru, Longhu sub group shoulder cloth (naga pong), cm 43x159, done by Michael c. Howard in his book "Textiles of the highland peoples of Burma", White Lotus, Bangkok 2005. This shoulder cloth or "naga pong" is made of a single piece of cloth. The weft is woven with black and yellow cotton thread. The warp is woven mostly with yellow cotton thread with five stripes woven with black cotton thread and two to three strands of reddish-purple silk thread is woven in lines on near the edges and elsewhere as dashes. The warp yellow threads on the front are combined with thick supplementary weft black threads to form rows of supplementary weft patterning covering the entire front. The patterns include several different versions of the lotus motif and smaller diamond shapes. Thin reddish-purple silk threads are are also woven across the weft at intervals. The ends are folded and stitched with alternating sections of yellow cotton thread. Not good enough for you? Ok, no problem, see my other rr postings: http://rugrabbit.com/profile/580
