Boutique Studio Silk Wall Hanging STL16


This beautiful silk textile is from a family run 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 where this silk textile was created uses the natural yellow silk from a specific cocoon, which provides a natural look with some texture. It is predominantly in vibrant red with complex motifs in red, olive, navy and ivory adorning the ends. Long knotted silk tassels in the colors of the motifs are sewn into the end of the silk.

The beautiful natural colors were achieved in a time consuming process using extract from indigo, lacquer, Burmese mahogany tree, and the bark of the Indian trumpet flower tree. This piece took over a month to complete and could be used as a bed or table runner as well as a wall hanging serving as a exotic accessory to Asian inspired decor.

The bamboo hanger is not included, but can be purchased here – bamboo silk hanger.
