If you want to buy silk then you should find something to satisfy here. You can even wander through the looms & watch how they are made. Expensive but top class.

Carol is such an inspiration. Go see the weaving center and have a chat with Carol herself. You will learn a lot about Laotian weaving techniques and its womenfolk.

We arrived just before lunch closing and despite that we're given a very informative tour by the owners explaining the different weaving techniques. The skill and time involved in the whole process certainly justified the prices of their lovely silk textiles.

A brilliant place, where Carol Cassidy has devoted her life to empowering local women through ensuring local weaving traditions are continued and developed: truly a place where art, textiles, empowerment and cultural anthropology come together.
