Size: 34 x 168 cm
Material: pure handwoven organic silk, natural dye
This handwoven silk scarf is made with naturally dyed organic silk by Lao women. The quality is exquisite with stunning motifs throughout. This requires a great deal of skill and time. Silk weaving has been an integral part of life and culture in Laos for centuries. Most Lao village women learned the art of weaving and the traditional designs from their mothers.
The colour of this silk scarf makes it unisex.
It stands for a simple and slow lifestyle, one that enjoys life fully.
