Description

The Luang Prabang Temple Ikat is the work of master weaver Mrs. Sykai. She was inspired by the beautiful gates found at the temples in Luang Prabang, and has added little motifs that represent jasmine flowers, another one of her favourite things!

Combining ikat and chok, or discontinuous supplementary weft, techniques, Mrs. Sykai created a wall hanging that is at once bold, tranquil and minimalist. We recommend it as a wall hanging or as an elegant throw on your bed. Handwoven using 100% silk and natural dyes.
