Tribal Textiles of Southeast Asia - 3  
            from the collection of Marla Mallett


Here are more tribal weavings and embroideries from Thailand, Laos and Vietnam as well as a few from Burma. Many tribal peoples migrated into these areas from southwestern China, and their textiles are closely related to pieces on our Chinese Minority textile pages. There are also parallels with Indonesian craft traditions.

Contemporary silk brocades from Laos are posted separately.
