What makes this fabric special: Our heritage hand-woven silks represent the vibrancy and spirituality of historic Lao weaving each of which tells a story. The intricate motifs and skill required to weave them, have made Lao silk weaving unique across the world. Given the complexity of the designs, we are only able to weave between 8 - 24", 20 - 60cm per day. These beautifully hand-crafted fabrics are truly unique. Phalam motif tells a lovely story. If you look at the design you will notice two stick like characters, head to head. These characters depict the marriage of a Lao prince to a Khmer princess. This was the design on their wedding blanket.
