Understated elegance and contemporary style define these new collections, which celebrate the meeting of East and West. With her workshop of local Lao weavers and dyers, Viviane Inthavong proudly creates traditional ethnic textiles with a contemporary flair.
Lao Textiles was founded in 1990. It is located in a refurbished French colonial mansion three blocks from the Mekong River in downtown Vientiane, the capital of Laos. There, Carol blends her own artistry with ancient local techniques and traditions to create contemporary woven art. The team of predominantly female weavers use hybrid looms, which Carol designed herself, to produce intricate brocade, ikat and tapestry textiles. The hand-crafted pieces are labors of love. Wall hangings often take four months to complete; on the most complex designs only two centimeters are woven per day.
A boutique handicraft gallery with an aim to sustain and promote Lao artistic tradition so that everyone can enjoy it.
