Description

Katu communities live in southern Laos, and their artisan skills are best seen in their beaded textiles. Using hand loomed cotton grown in southern Laos, they weave on a backstrap loom and insert the beads into the weft to create dynamic motifs.

Stars, fences, seeds and fields are typical motifs that reflect the agrarian lifestyle of the Katu. Our Village Weavers Project has been working with Katu communities since 2008.

This cushion cover is on the smaller side, due to the dimension of the backstrap loom. It features zipper closure. Insert not included.

Please add comments on the checkout if you have a preference for the color, We can offer: Navy/Pink; Red/Purple and Grey/Yellow.
