Abstract

Based on size and utility, Tai Lue shawls are divided into three categories, namely: large, medium and small. In general, they do not have specific sizes, designs, and proportions. However, it could be concluded that the design on both seams must be the same, while the middle is either blank or with small designs in order to indicate that the same designs must be embroidered on the other side. Based on the beauty of the designs, they are not of the same size, depending on the flower designs used for decoration. The shawls are mostly used during religious ceremonies and not for daily use. Originally, they were exclusively used by men when attending a merit-making ceremony at the temple. Nowadays, they are used as sacrificial items or souvenirs or decorative items, and they are adopted by both men and women. For women, the shawls are of the same or similar designs as their sarongs. Wearing a shawl on shoulders like a sash, as it is worn by men to attend religious ceremonies at the temple. Presently, shawls are worn in all occasions, and thus its original purpose as wiping cloth is reduced to a decorative item. Later on, more designs have been added and more women wear them to match the designs of their sarongs. The traditional designs have gradually been replaced by more innovative and modified ones.
