Carol is such an inspiration. Go see the weaving center and have a chat with Carol herself. You will learn a lot about Laotian weaving techniques and its womenfolk.

Ah! Ah! Ah! One of the most wonderful places at Vientiane! Maybe I'm just a bit like Japanese. I spent few hours just watching the weavers working. How they made the fabrics, and the beautiful, complicated art they were weaving. It just made me so...More
