Shades of Blue Silk Scarf

$89

Silk is usually associated with wealth and status, yet in postwar Laos, it was this natural protein fibre woven into fabric that became a lifeline to thousands of displaced families. Today, Phontong Handicraft Cooperative is weaving better futures for women by providing tools and training in skills like fabric dyeing and the use of looms. Silk farmers and weavers value the supplemental income and can send their children to school without growing opium or burning the forest for more land to farm.
