This rose-colored silk scarf was handwoven by Lao master weaver Mrs. Kieng.
The gradated warp colors of rosy reds, combined with orange and white threads create a glowing effect throughout the surface of this small block-weave silk scarf. The scarf is finished with twisted fringe.
Mrs. King is affiliated with the Living Crafts Centre in Luang Prabang, Laos. The Centre is part of Ock Pop Tok, whose mission is to support traditional Lao crafts and to provide economic opportunities for the artists.
