Description: Burma image, WAA0120. [A group of Chin men.] (Researcher's notes in brackets)
"The Siyins and Soktes possess no distinctive tartan as their women are only able to weave a plain cotton cloth which, with blankets raided from Burma, formed the covering of the Siyins before our arrival. Now, however, the popular garb of the Siyins are blankets from Manchester, cast off clothing of the troops, the Burma putso and the Indian lungyi." ['The Chin Hills: Vol. I', B. S. Carey and H. N. Tuck, Rangoon, 1896, p.171]
