Indigo Ikat Li Minority Blanket Exceptionally fine and rare three paneled ikat blanket from the Li people of Hainan Island, Southwest China. The lighter wide indigo bands consist a coarse warp fiber most likely linen or hemp and the narrow brown and dark blue indigo bands are made of a thinner and softer thread, probably cotton or cotton and bast fiber mix. In near perfect condition, there is one tiny pinhole and minor dark staining (this could also be a form a brash) on the inside- please see last enlargement. i have had a few Li blankets over the years and this the only i have seen with an indigo ikat construction. a similar pattern can be seen amongst the men’s jackets of the Ha speaking group al though they are not ikat. l: 218cm/86in and w: 110cm/42.5in. This made from all handspun thread and natural dye- circa mid 20th century. http://www.trocadero.com/stores/abhayaasianart/items/1344280/Indigo-Ikat...
