Learn traditional Lao bead weaving with sisters Mone and Doi from the Katu tribe.

Mone and Doi learned to weave since they were seven. They and their sisters lived in a hill tribe village where weaving is tradition and main industry. Every tribe has their own traditional patterns and meanings behind them, each representing an aspect in their daily lives. The sisters moved to Luang Prabang to start The Weaving Sisters, where they sell handmade Katu and Hmong handicraft, as well as teach guests to weave.

The sisters find joy in teaching others to weave, and be a part of this Lao cultural tapestry.
