Mrs. Khongkham (Kham)

Like many of the other master weavers, Mrs. Kham started weaving at the early age of thirteen from her mother.

It was not until early 2019 when she decided to join the Ock Pop Tok team. She is grateful for the working environment here and truly appreciates being able to weave as her full-time job now. Her hope for the future of textiles in Laos is “to further develop our weaving techniques and designs so that newer generations can carry on these traditions”.

In her spare time, you can find Mrs. Kham either in her backyard gardening or teaching her two young children how to weave back at home.
