How lustrous and elegant this handwoven subtly-striped silk scarf is.
Blended warp colors featuring teal create a multicolored effect that washes across the surface of this small block-weave silk scarf. The combination of color and weave net a smooth, yet textural, effect. The scarf is finished with twisted fringe.
This scarf was handwoven by Mrs. Kieng, a master weaver and ambassador for Lao weaving. She and other master artisans are affiliated with the Living Crafts Centre in Luang Prabang. The Centre is part of Ock Pop Tok, whose mission is to support traditional Lao crafts and to provide economic opportunities for the artists.
