Hand Loomed Fabric Offcuts

 

 

Fabric offcuts from garment factories located in Chiang Mai Thailand are collected by a local co-operative based in San Kampaeng. It is here that a group of village ladies use traditional hand loom techniques to tie the offcuts together and transform back into a colourful and usable fabric. Unfortunately there is little interest from the younger generation to learn to use the hand loom, and so there is a danger that the technique will die out with the elderly ladies who currently loom the fabric.

Products made from this material include the Lamai Recycled Tote and the Loomy Clutch
