A men's shoulder cloth among the tribes in Nagaland, Eastern-most India.  The red squares are made of shaved dog hair, soaked in the river for a long period to catch the iron, dyeing them red.  Hand woven, hand spun.  Cowrie shells hand-sewn, indicating a position of power and wealth.  A marvelous, rare, powerful piece.
