From Patricia Cheesman's Lao-Tai Textiles: The Textiles of Xam Nuea and Muang Phuan "Curtains were used in traditional Lao-Tai houses in the northeast region to screen off doorways and rooms called 'haa kang. The curtains were made with a acenral field of decorative fabric, usually embellished with protective symbols, and framed in plain fabric... Discontinuous supplementary weft designs were arranged in bands, usually with a wide central field of very larg motifs such as mythical birds, magical beings, ancestor figures and river dragons.
