A pair of ultra-fine Trobriands woven armbands circa 1960 (CBH)

These Trobriands armbands, woven in intricate self pattern from delicate fern stems, represent the finest vegetable fibre weaving produced in Melanesia. The contrasting bands at the top and bottom and intricate geometric patterns are typical of the Trobriands weaving style and were traditionally worn by both men and women. This slender pair is 13 cm /4 ½ inches tall and only 5.5 cm / 2 ½ inches in diameter and was probably made for a young girl.
