Description

The Luang Prabang Temple Gate Ikat Wall Hanging was inspired by the beautiful gates found at the temples in Luang Prabang.

Combining ikat and chok, or discontinuous supplementary weft techniques, our master weavers have created a wall hanging that is at once bold, tranquil and minimalist. We recommend it as a wall hanging or as an elegant throw on your bed. Handwoven using 100% silk and natural dyes.
