In 2003, we met a family from Laos while they were visiting relatives in the States. We hit it off right away as they're very likeable sort of people. They introduced us to many authentic Lao foods all of which we immediately fell in love with (my favorite is Pho). Among other fun Lao things, they introduced us to handmade 100% silk scarves, and asked if we would be willing to offer them to our customers.
These handmade 100% silk scarves have been shipped to us by our now dear friends from Laos (our families get together whenever they visit the States - every so many years). The scarves are made by community artisans using traditional methods. This helps to keep their community and culture intact by empowering the people to stay in their villages (no need to leave their family/village to work in the city).
Because these scarves are not mass manufactured but handmade, they may have slight variations, making each one unique.
Buying directly from the weavers means we receive special prices, and we can pass those saving onto you. Don’t be fooled by other websites selling similar scarves for $50 and up! Our direct purchase power allows for handmade, high quality at affordable prices.
Our deliciously soft and elegant scarves are available in 3 styles (weaves) as seen directly below:
