Hi Valentin

A very nice and beautifully woven textile.

Is there perhaps a little typo in your post? I think perhaps it should be a 'Haka' Chin loincloth? Do you have 'Mantles of Merit: Chin Textiles from Myanmar, India and Bangladesh' by David W. & Barbara G. Fraser? On pages 105 and 106 are some similar loincloths although without the interested stripe feature in the plain white area (although similar stitching is shown on some Haka blankets elsewhere in the book). I find this particular style of loincloth very interesting where there is the transition from warp-faced to weft-faced weave (end panels). Page 107 of the Frasers' book describes how this very long loincloth is worn. I have one and it is a lot of cloth....
