Lao Dyeing | Tien Chiu
While in Vientiane, I went to Carol Cassidy's shop, Lao Textiles. Lao Textiles was founded 14 years ago and was the first foreign business in Laos...it produces museum quality textiles designed by Carol Cassidy, based on traditional Lao patterns and woven by some very skilled weavers. They were kind enough to let me take photos in their workshop...they also introduced me to a natural dyer named Dong, who was kind enough to do a natural dye demo for me.
