"There is always a market for quality..."
“Everything matters. Every color matters. Every thread matters,” says Carol Cassidy, founder and owner of Lao Textiles. “I start with traditional patterns and techniques and I modify, interpret, translate, adapt into a product that becomes international,” she says. “The elements are traditional but the complete design is my own creation.”
Her 40 artisans count thousands of silk threads, wind, tie, and then warp them onto the loom. Oftentimes, the preparatory steps consume more time than the actual weaving itself. Because of the effort involved, everything with Lao Textiles has a very authentic feel to it.
