This light purple shawl from Nong Bua Lam Phu is seventy-nine centimeters wide.
That is why this scarf is also ideal to wear as a shawl.
On cool evenings, sit outside just a little longer and turn down the heating a few degrees.
Make yourself comfortable while enjoying the super soft warm fabric.
Another advantage is that rayon yarn does not itch.
A light purple shawl with class
The wide scarf from Nong Bua Lam Phu has a stylish appearance.
Woven by weavers in the hot, dry countryside.
Because the land does not yield enough, the ladies try to supplement the meager income by weaving their fabrics.
The shawl can be worn all year round.
The rayon yarn of the scarf has a little shine.
After weaving, the fabric is washed in Alkaline water with a high PH value.
That makes the scarf extra soft.
The weaver receives a fair price for her work.
She learned the trade from her mother and neighbours.
She makes the most beautiful fabrics on her wooden loom.
The scarf was woven in “chicken eye” pattern.
Colors that match light purple
Light grey, white, ecru and beige are first mentioned as good combinations with light purple.
Fortunately, these color combinations are not sacred.
Feel free to experiment because black and blue are also quite good and how about yellow or pink?
