Laos : Learn about the "Silk from Paradise

Laos - The Luang Say Residence - Luang Prabang - Main View 

The fine art of silk production and weaving is known in Laos since ages. But the skillful designs and high quality of the Lao silk are not yet much known outside the country. Discover with us the Lao silk in a half day excursion in Vientiane.

You will see the rearing of silk worms and their cocooning and learn about the different kinds of Mulberry trees to feed the silk worms. Experience how the the cocoons are turning into silk threads. Try the hand reeling and dying of the threads yourself or learn how to handle the weaving loom.

Laos - The Luang Say Residence - Luang Prabang - Main View

For this experience we cooperate with Mai Savanh Lao, an organization with their base in Vientiane, which aims to generate sustainable income for families in remote areas of Laos. The families are organized in a network reaching all over Laos from North to South, from farmers that cultivate the silk worms to the women weaving the silk. This network provides educational courses, quality control and support for their production and gives the producers and their families an opportunity to engage in dignifying work under fair conditions.
