Description

The Katu Men Scarf is made by Katu weavers in the south of Laos. Katu weavers weave cotton using backstrap tension looms. They keep the tension on the loom by sitting on the floor and extending their legs from their waist.

If you practice yoga, then you’ll appreciate that the tension and strength required is like Dandasana. You have to be stiff, like a wooden stick to keep the warp and weft straight. The scarf is finished with a cotton thread blanket stitch.

Please add comments on the checkout  if you have a preference for the color of the scarf. We can offer: White, Blue
