Description

The Dao Tok Organza was created for the Lao Handicraft Association annual competition. The combination of organza, natural dye and Job’s Tears adornments make this a classically Lao handicraft.

Organza is raw silk, which means it is spun from the cocoon while the fibres are still covered in seracin, a natural film that adds texture, strength and durability.

Paired with the matching coasters, the placemats are the perfect addition to a festive table. Buy with the matching coasters and matching table runner for a complete set!
