Early 20th C. Antique Ladakhi Shawl. Tie-dyed Tibetan Lingtse Cape, This style of cape is found in Zanskar. This may be older but the traditional hand woven tie and dye Ladakhi Shawls has not been made since 1960's. Today women opt for more common western styles. A few very old women still wear these during festival time. Nice Ladakhi shawl with two extra tigmas on each side, indicating some ranking within the community. Nice uniformity of the tigma.
