Photographs taken in Luang Prabang, Laos.
Weaving is a tradition carried on by women in Laos, from mother to daughter. Their work is beautiful and requires solid knowledge.
Based on silk, the process goes from breeding silkworms, dying and weaving. This art is growing in recognition and represents a substantial part of Laos’ culture.
Several workshops are settled around Luang Prabang. Ock Pop Tok is an excellent example which promotes the local art. Woven products are an important source of income for Lao people. It is common to see such products in villages and markets where tourists are likely to visit.
