Description

A bestseller because it represents a classic, eco-friendly, handmade and sustainable Lao souvenir! Plus, it’s not so bulky that it can be used in between seasons…

The all organic cotton yarn is grown and woven in the northern Oudomxay province.

Collaborating with us through the Village Weavers Project, Tai Lue weavers in Oudomxay dye the cotton in natural indigo and weave these soft, easy to wear scarves. Both cotton and indigo are key components in Tai Lue weavings.
