Description

Did you know this wall hanging by master weaver Mrs. Sykai won the Lao Handicrafts Association’s esteemed Design Innovation Award? In addition to the diamond motifs, which mean beauty and wisdom, the design mixing bamboo reeds, Job’s Tears seeds, pompoms and whole silk cocoons, is a tribute to all the natural and simple materials that contribute to the richness of Lao textiles and handicrafts.

It wonderfully represents our mission to bridge tradition and innovation and elevate Lao textiles. The transparency and durability of the organza silk also makes it a natural room divider. How will you use it? Let us know!
