The ikat technique gives tiffany new york only the most beautiful designs were made in silk and was reserved for women's tube-skirts and long cloths for both men and women. The tube-skirts of the Lao groups was smaller than that of the Cambodian groups. Another striking difference was the use of three shafts in the Cambodian pieces whereas the Lao used only two shafts. The result of the three shafts was a weft faced fabric which showed off the weft ikat to its maximum.
The Lao Loum and Tai Phuan styles:
The Lao Loum and Tai Phuan wove silk mat mi tube-skirts tiffany new york store which are too similar to differentiate unless the traditional waist bands are in place.

The mat mi patterns of these tube-skirts included geometric motifs representing the "nak", a protective river dragon, animals such as spiders and snakes, plants and flowers such as pine trees, sandalwood and jasmine and fruits such as watermelon and pineapple.
The favorite arrangements for these motifs was within a lattice-work tiffany & co which covered the whole piece, design that grew from the hem or in narrow bands with a line at the selvage of the lower part of the tube-skirt to indicate the placing of the hem piece.
The hem pieces, woven in a narrow band of compound weave were added to protect the main skirt cloth from damage. After the development of the silk industry in central Isan by King Rama V, the width of these tube-skirts increased from around thirty-six inches to forty inches tiffany & co schmuck and thus the waist band and/or hem piece were not added in central Isan areas after this period whereas the upper Isan pieces kept the old structure.

The Phutai style:
The silk mat mi tube-skirts of the Phutai in central Isan maintained Tiffany Großhandel their narrow width with added hem pieces and waist bands.

The Khmer Sung style:
The Khmer Sung of lower Isan wove their mat mi with three shafts making this a distinct feature among other mat mi in Isan.

The original structure of the mi hol design was as a long cloth up to discounted tiffany Jewellery our meters in length to be worn in the pantaloon style by women. This method of wearing the cloth was called “chongkraben” which was used by both men and women.
The mi hol is an ancient design with strong taboos which have protected it against the winds of change. The tiny ikat pattern was made in yellow and green with a red or purple-brown ground. As the area was very dry they did not grow cotton and used their old silk mi hol tube-skirts to work in thus it is rare to find old pieces.
The Khmer Sung tube-skirts were much wider and longer tiffany schmuck online than other Isan textiles. Sometimes a white cotton waist band was added and rarely a separate hem piece made in mat mi was added. This unusual structure may have been added to imitate the borders of the Khmer long cloths.
