Luntaya Acheic

Luntaya acheic is the prized cloth used for skirtcloth, or sarong, in Burma. Luntayas originated as court dress but later came to signify social status outside the court as well. The bright, horizontally patterned silk cloth was woven on a hand loom in an interlocking tapestry technique called acheic. Luntaya refers to the design of horizontal wavelike lines, evocative of the ripples and waves of the Irawaddi, the largest river in Burma.
