Handwoven of naturally dyed Laotian silk, this variegated rose and olive fabric has depth and richness. The plain-weave fabric is constructed with very fine black warp threads dyed with phay which has been fermented in mud for 3 nights. They are set widely enough to enhance the color-play of the thick-and-thin eri silk weft threads. The rose weft is dyed with fangdeng (Caesalpinia sappan). The green weft is dyed with hem (Coscinlum fenestratum), then dipped twice in the indigo vat. The cloth has a subtle weft-wise grain. It is a light-weight fabric with medium drape. It is suitable for interior decor as well as clothing like light-weight jackets and lined vests. Hand wash the fabric in cold water and air dry.
The fabric is sold by the yard.
