Here’s a sneak peek of some of the gorgeous Pwo Karen blouses that came down from the mountains earlier this week. They are hand-woven on traditional back-strap looms and come from several Pwo Karen villages in Sop Moei District. These blouses are worn by married women only and are as unique as they are colorful. Each woman has her own style of embroidery and preference for seed appliqué, pom-pom’s and other embellishments.
Check back soon to see the bag and cushion collection we will be making out of these blouses!
