On Saturday I had the pleasure of having a Surry Hills’ cuppa with Samorn Sanixay from Eastern Weft. Eastern Weft is a weaving house located in Vientiane, Laos, founded by Samorn Sanixay and Kaisy Sophabmixay. Their cooperative creates beautiful hand-woven textiles, and in doing so provides sustainable livelihoods for skilled young weavers from Laos’ diverse range of ethnic minorities.

Each weaver brings unique experience, skills, techniques and motifs to the textiles. Simply inspirational from origin, intention, making and experiencing. Samorn’s modest presence, perspective and dedication is beautiful and inspiring.

Please view Eastern Weft’s textiles and commitment at www.easternweft.com.au especially ‘weave’ that shows their care and craft; from silk worms to natural locally sourced dyes and the integration of Laos’ diverse textile heritage. Very special!
