About Dai Handweaving
Each scarf is originally designed and handwoven by Dai ladies living in the subtropical forests of Xishuangbanna in the Yunnan Province of Southwest China, where their unique cultural tradition has flourished autonomously from the rest of China. In Dai unique tradition, the art of Brocade is an essential skill for women to get a good marriage. The fabric, usually cotton or silk, is handwoven with a handloom, a traditional device made of vertical wood-shafts. Sitting at the centre of the wooden frame which holds the warp in tension, the weaver encases the horizontal weft threads through by pushing a treadle to lift and lower the heddles. The handsome abstract patterns, usually realised on red, white or black background, typically represent natural elements such as horses, deer, elephants, peacocks, trees and flowers, which reveal the peaceful and joyful spirit of Dai people and their Buddhist tradition.
