Cotton

Organic handspun cotton

It was still the early 2000s and the beginnings of the Village Weavers Project when we heard about a village in the Luang Prabang Province producing high quality cotton. On arrival it was instantly apparent that the journey was going to be worth it. If you ever wondered what a Tai Lue village looks like, Ban Nayang is the picture perfect Tai Lue village. Set in a lush river valley, under each of the elegant stilted houses a loom, baskets overflowing with cotton ready for spinning and colourful yarns drying in the sun.

Nowadays cotton is the world’s most important non-food agricultural product and one of the most favored fabrics for clothes. But did you ever wonder how cotton is made? How does it go from this little cloud like ball on a plant to thread? Watch this video for answers to your questions. Enjoy the demonstration!

We mostly use handspun cotton for our products at the exception of some products which are made from what we call Lanten cotton, thinner cotton woven by Lanten artisans. From the Tai Lue, we buy handspun cotton fabric by the meter, wall hangings, scarves, shawls and skirts, among other things. All made of the best quality cotton Laos has to offer.
