Both my sister and I began to weave at six years of age
under the expert guidance of our Mother. Since then we have
gained considerable experience that we now pass on to apprentice
weavers, who, hopefully, will become the master Lao textile
artists of tomorrow. Today, we supervise the entire weaving
process in an extended family manner where the weavers are
part of the design planning, colour choice and deft sense
of tradition and skill.
of our work was in 1991 when we participated the Southeast
Asia Textile Weaving Contest, held in Chiang Mai, Thailand
sponsored by UNESCO. We received the major award to recognize
our work in weaving.
winning is permanently exhibited in Paris with an identical
creation on display at the Phaeng Mai Gallery.
