Sample, Nandi, 1965

Sample of hand-woven cotton in which the warps are thinner and more tightly twisted than the loosely-twisted, slubby wefts. Wide stripes in each direction are interrupted occasionally with very narrow ones of 2 warps or wefts each. The vertical stripes are accented with insertions of discontinuous weft which is very thick and raised. Orange and ivory warps; orange, light green and ivory wefts; ivory and light green brocading yarns.
