This is a called a Kalaga and is a Burmese/Thailand sequined and embroidered ethnic wall hanging. The process starts with cotton fabric design cutouts that are then decorated with handmade sequins and couched colored threads. These pieces are then attached to the background fabric and stuffed with cotton. Next the background is filled in with more sequins and swirled threads. Hand made glass beads are attached by more threads.This Kalaga, framed, was made circa 1940 and has a value of $75 US dollars.
