Description

Walking around UNESCO Luang Prabang, you’ve no doubt encountered countless stupas. You’ve probably also seen the stupa shaped flowers women make and sell as temple offerings. Building sand stupas during Lao new year celebrations brings good omen.

The triangular shape also represents the “triple gem” foundation in Buddhism. These reasons, plus the aesthetics, inspired this original design by Mrs. Sykai, a master weaver at the Living Crafts Centre. Made from handspun silk using ikat dye techniques.
