Our guide took us there when I asked for a place with silk weavings. It's a bit out of town. The ladies were at work and said ok to my photographing them. A lot of skill goes into their work.

In the backyard you can watch the ladies in their looms, and you can imagine how much work and art is in... More

Phaeng Mai Gallery is a true find in Laos and while it is a little out of the way, it's worth the visit if you're interested in quality Lao silk products. In addition to the gallery/store, they have a whole workshop in the back where their staff produce the silk, dye them in natural dyes and weave them into the... More
