This is an amazing textile hand woven by a Lao Master Weaver. She's the kind of weaver who is a national treasure...a cherished human repository for the secret dyes, patterns and techniques of what is now a cultural tradition struggling to survive. Slow and meticulous work, weaving holds little attraction for the younger generation. Every village house in Lao, however, still has a loom and every village girl still learns to weave.
Though this weaving would be magnificent displayed on the wall or table, it begs to adorn in the manner for which it was traditionally intended - worn by a special lady for a special occasion.
Materials: Handwoven 100% Silk Lao Master Weave
