Description

The Tai Lue often decorate their traditional clothing with coloured pom poms, or cotton balls, and Job’s Tears seeds, a plant that grows easily in the Lao countryside. We’ve adapted this use to create playful necklaces that can be worn by anyone of any age or to be used as a decorative piece in your home.

Working through the Village Weavers Project, Tai Lue artisans in central and northern Laos string Job’s Tears beads and make colourful pompoms. Have a creative way to wear or use this piece? Let us know!
