Description

The Floating Lantern wall hanging depicts several Nagas protecting a diamond. Here the diamond symbolises wealth and beauty, while the Nagas represent protection and shelter.

At the end of Buddhist lent, or the rains retreat, the Floating Lights festival depicts this image on floats that are paraded through town before being released into the river.

Replicating this image into a textile is the idea of Mrs. Phonesouk, a young master weaver from Houaphan Province in northern Laos. Mrs. Phone came to study finance in Luang Prabang, but her true love is weaving. She works with our team in both capacities!
