My Sazigyo:  The Half-Inch Wide Textile that Inspired Travels to the Other Side of the World
This is the story of my 100-year-old tablet-woven sazigyo, a yards-long manuscript binding ribbon from Burma which contains text and images.  I will talk about how ribbons like this one were made and used traditionally as part of the Buddhist practice of earning merit, the meanings of the motifs on my sazigyo, and experiences I've had with scholars, collectors, and weavers in England, Thailand, and Burma.
