Description

In 2014, master weaver Mrs. Kieng travelled to San Francisco where she visited the DeYoung Museum and heard the New World Symphony. Upon her return, Mrs. Kieng wove this scarf, a narrative of linear silk yarns that were inspired by her experience.

Mrs. Kieng is an artist in her own right. The Queen Naga wall hanging is one of her original designs. The San Francisco scarf is a wonderful way to wear a piece by this incredible weaver. Woven on a four pedal floor loom at the Living Crafts Centre.
