Product Description

Handwoven of Laotian silk, this fabric is a gold-toned beige. Constructed in plain weave, the fine, plied natural-white white warp is set to allow the thicker mustard-colored natural silk weft to dominate the surface. The weft is dyed with Houkouang (Terminalla catappa).The variation in thickness and occasional slubs produce a subtle weft-wise grain. It is a light-weight fabric with good drape. It is strong enough to use for interior decor, yet pliable enough for a shirt-weight jacket. Hand wash the fabric and air dry.

The fabric is sold by the yard.

Opened in 1992 by Director Rassanikone Nanong, Nikone Handicraft Centre is regenerating traditional Lao weaving and dyeing to produce textiles for modern interiors. More than 100 skilled weavers from villages in Vientiane create 100%handwoven naturally-dyed Lao silk and cotton fabrics, plus gift items, fashion accessories and home decor accessories.
