Boutique Silk Runner STL34

$195.00

This silk runner is from a family run boutique studio in Vientiane, Laos. The family’s ancestral home is Sam Neua, where the tradition of silk weaving is centuries old and the silk weavers are renowned for their remarkable skills. Two sisters now run the studio, and were taught how to weave under the expert guidance of their mother, in keeping with Lao tradition. In 1991 their efforts were acknowledged by UNESCO for their contribution to the tradition of silk weaving in Laos. This studio uses the natural yellow silk from a specific kind of cocoon, which provides a natural look with some texture.

This silk runner is in dusty purple with a grey hue. A central motif in pink adorns the piece which ends with a subtle motif and pink pinstripes. The beautiful natural colors were achieved in a time-consuming process using extract from lacquer and ebony fruit. This piece took over a week to complete and could be used as a bed or table runner as well as a shawl.
