Laos textile, Laos silk, French silk

It would be hard to exaggerate the absolute perfection that is Soie de Lune. Born out of a partnership between Daniel Marcus and French designer Anou Thammavong, the company has reinvigorated the tradition of silk hand weaving in Laos with a range of patterns that can be fully customized to fit any and every requirement of color, scale, ply, and design. This year the company is also launching a line of durable machine-made fabrics that retain the spirit of the delicate silk originals, but at a greatly reduced cost. Their website doesn’t yet do the company justice, but their videos do give a peek at the intricacy and refinement of their production process. For purchase information click here.

On another note: A brief Winter Holiday will keep me away from all things digital until the middle of next week.
