The Kingdom of Tai Houn wall hanging is inspired by a vintage textile from our collection. This woven artwork highlights two Naga motifs: the Naga diamond and Naga boat. Coconut flowers, dancing Nagas and swans also decorate the bottom of the textile. This intricate piece took more than 85 hours to complete. Mrs. Ting was inspired by a textile from our Heritage Textile Collection, a rare collection of Lao textiles featuring 700 pieces that we started collecting in 2002. Weavers use this collection as a source of inspiration and as means to make rare old designs that are hard to find these days. The Kingdom of Tai Houn was an area north of Luang Prabang – around the River Beng in Oudomxai Province. This area is heavily populated to this day with Tai Lue communities.
