Description: Burma image, WA0618. Two Falam men.
James Henry Green. 1926.
'The mantle and plaid is usually worn like the toga. It passes over the left shoulder, and under the right arm and across the chest, and the end thrown over the right shoulder. 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' ['The Chin Hills: Vol. I', B. S. Carey and H. N. Tuck, Rangoon, 1896, p.171]
