skirt; textile

Tubular skirt made from tabby-woven silk textile decorated for two thirds of its width with a blue-black grid of warp and weft stripes on a red ground, and a panel of weft ikat. The light pink ikat pattern consists of short dashes arranged on the blue-black weft stripes in small diamond shapes. The panel of ikat is placed closer to one of the selvedges. On one side of the seam is a wide stripe which is only banded in blue-black and red, and contains an overall larger pattern of linked diamonds, and triangles created by finer, orange ikat.
