The Lotus Diamond silk scarf showcases an intricately woven design along its border. Lotus flowers play an important role in Lao culture. These beautiful flowers bloom every morning and according to legend, Gautama Buddha’s first steps made lotus flowers appear everywhere he stepped. The lotus flower motif is in the centre of the diamond pattern. This scarf is great as it features a traditional pattern yet it appears modern and fresh due to the large plain weave section in the middle. This technique of weaving is known as discontinuous supplementary weft. This is the weaving technique that Laos weavers are becoming famous for, it requires a master weaver skill and patience to set up the pattern and complete the weaving.
