Description

This wall art is a Village Weavers Project collaboration with the master weavers of Houaphan Province. The weavers from this province in northern Laos have long been recognized as some of Laos’ most accomplished weavers.

These master weavers have taken traditional diamond designs usually seen on Lao sinhs, traditional tube skirts, and woven them in much larger proportions creating striking bold designs in different color schemes. The traditional diamond motif is very popular in Lao textiles and can be found in many of our textiles. Perfect for the bedroom, living room, dining room or really just any room…

In December 2020, Ock Pop Tok organized a training* for 15 weavers from eight villages. Led by Lear, Ock Pop Tok’s Head of Design and Production, we helped them refine their weaving skills, improve their pattern design and color selection to create textiles for the high-end luxury market. For years, we’ve been building a relationship with this market, creating and nurturing a sense of appreciation for this refined work. These women are thus able to get a higher level of income and be remunerated like the high-skilled artisans they are. 

This training was financed by the Handicraft Skills for Tourism Small Grants Facility, an initiative of the Skills for Tourism Project (LAO/029) which is financed by the government of Lao PDR, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Switzerland, and implemented by the Ministry of Education and Sports of Lao PDR and LuxDev, the Luxembourg Development Cooperation Agency.
