Guanyin

Guanyin
Exquisite silk scarves from Laos, finely handwoven and natural dyed, creating a lovely lustre and four charming designs.

In this small Buddhist country where only rivers connect many communities, the tradition of handweaving local silk is passed from grandmother to mother and daughter. They use the wooden loom still kept beneath traditional stilt houses in rural Laos. The rim of old bicycle wheel might make up the spinning wheel.

Careful mixes of plants, fruits and bark create lustrous shades. Choose from four charming designs: elephants, raindrops, stripes or perfectly plain. Depending on the design, a Guanyin scarf takes from three days to a week to weave. A treasure to own and a pleasure to wear.
