A popular design is the so-called snakeskin pattern.
The scarves with this drawing flew out the door and we are happy that we were able to find a few new ones.
We have one of this blue and white shawl.
The medium thick yarn is tightly woven so that the shawl is well protected against the wind.
It is wonderfully soft and the fabric shines slightly.
The colors come directly from nature
All these colors come directly from nature.
Indigo plants and wood colored the threads of this unique shawl.
Our weavers still dye their yarns in the traditional way.
They learned from their (grand)mother how to get the most beautiful colors from plants.

For decades, peasant women have used the hot dry season to weave their fabrics.
Because the fields of Sakon Nakhon only produce crops once a year, this part of Thailand is a relatively poor region.
The income from weaving is therefore important.
The weavers took all their time to make this beautiful blue and white shawl.
It took several days to finish.
Dyeing, weaving, everything was done in a sustainable way.
Strong, soft, handmade and a good cause
The fabric feels very fine and soft, one of the characteristics of rayon, the material from which it was made.
The scarf was woven by older farmers who could really use your support.
Their craftsmanship only increases your appreciation for this fine piece of craftsmanship.
This special shawl not only looks great on you, you will also wear it with pleasure for years to come.
