Description

Love Gifts, or pha khan mon in Lao, are symbolic gifts given by a young weaver to her crush or romantic partner. During the war years, love gifts were sent off by mothers and sisters to sons and brothers on the frontlines as a reminder of home and as a symbol of love and protection.

Given their size, love gifts are a perfect starter piece for young weavers to practice and weave complicated motifs. One of our most popular pieces at Ock Pop Tok, this is a perfect gift for your loved ones or begin your collection of Lao textiles.

Our love gifts are woven by master weavers in their home villages, and each one takes about 10 hours to complete.

Framed against a solid silk background, it can be displayed as a work of art that it is!

Due to their handmade features, size, colour and motifs vary greatly with this piece. Picture may not indicate selection.
