Your two kids were great and smart in learning hill tribe traditional back-strap weaving. Let us know if you come back again to Chiang Mai in the future. You can learn the advanced patterns by then. Thank you and all the best.

The shop has started to teach Karen-style cotton weaving using a traditional body loom. The course was excellent and improved my understanding of traditional crafts.

Clean, and well stocked with lots of colorful hand made items that will make beautiful gifts for both sexes and help the Thai tribes of Lahu, Mien, Lisu, Akha, and Karen all at the same time. Reasonable to expensive. A joy for the eyes.
