Skirt (unsewn), probably was a "sonod"

Maroon, natural and brownish-black stripes with wp. ikat designs. Stripes near side selvages have simple dot and dash designs, those on the central warp bands have large designs of typical curls and hooks. Warp ends cut and were at one time probably a short tubular woman's skirt. Specimen is catalogued as a skirt. (From card catalogue notes by Laura Watson Benedict(1861–1932) and Lisa Whitall (1926-2019), 1905)
