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. Brown and black warps; brown wefts; purple and black brocading yarns.
