About the Artisan

Led by master weaver and dyer Ms. Navone, female artisans in the Ban Nayang village of Laos work together to weave these napkins from naturally sourced, local fibers and natural dyes.

Each step of the process is done by hand. The women grow, harvest and clean the cotton in the local fields. Before hand-weaving each napkin, they hand spin the cotton yarn and dye the yarns. All the materials--from the cotton to botanicals--come from the village. Natural dyes include fermented indigo, mango bark, sappan wood, and mak bao wood. The final sewing is completed in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The women all belong to the Tai Lue ethnic group, who live in the central valleys and are known for their cotton weaving. They bring their traditional weaving techniques into the contemporary designs.

These handmade, functional, and beautiful pieces can easily be integrated into contemporary life.
