Description

This striking wall art featuring the Naga, floating lanterns and jasmine flowers is named Vieng Phoukha after the area in the Luang Namtha province, in northern Laos, where we first developed this design to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary. It was designed by a partner weaver from Thailand and one of our master weavers working in our Luang Prabang studio, Mrs. Mina. This wall art is a modified version of our famous Vieng Phouka Wall Hanging. This new interpretation is ready to be framed and adorn your walls with a piece of Lao culture.

This wall hanging is woven using the Discontinuous Supplementary Weft (Chok) technique. Two or more colored pattern threads are used to make the pattern. The weavers adds the colored thread by hand as opposed to using a shuttle. This technique is very time consuming. Sometimes a weaver can only weave a few centimeters a day. The wider the cloth, the longer it takes. The piece took 240 hours to weave.

While the wall hanging is rooted in traditional techniques, the geometric symmetry and colors give a very modern feel. Handwoven using 100% silk at the Living Crafts Centre.

Smaller in size than our wall hangings, they’re budget friendly. Sold unframed. Contact us if you want it framed but please note that shipping will then be more expensive.
