This textile was made for the tourist trade during or before World War II. Made by prolonged pounding of the inner bark of mulberry trees, then block printed using natural pigments. Much of this information was received from the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, more than 30 years ago. At that time I was told the museum would be happy to have it as part of its research collection.
Compression clips (included) were recommended for hanging the tapa.
Size is 56″x20″
