Description

Phou Tai communities in southern Laos are skilled cotton farmers and master ikat weavers. Using traditional wrapping techniques and natural indigo, they create motifs resembling temples and nagas, among others.

Traditionally, this type of fabric is used by women who wear them as sinh, or skirt. We’ve repurposed it to create cushion covers and other home decor items.

Let us know whether you would like the purple, red, green or yellow option.
