Early 20th C. Antique Tibetan Apron Blanket of Vegetable dyes. Still common today is the Tibetan Apron worn by married women. Generally speaking they are store bought today. On occasion I see village women weaving them on a loom, they weave in traditional method using chemically dyed wool. A Tibetan apron uses traditional contrasting colors.
Still has original border. I like tigma pieces and the older ones each tigma would be done by hand. The colors are soothing.
