Traditional Laos Basket Weaving

The Donkeo village is famous for its bamboo weaving workshops and varied elaborate designs and patterns. Lao bamboo weaving goes back centuries. Bamboo is the most suitable material available for basketry, but other materials that may be used are rattan and hemp palm. You can now learn this ancient traditional technique with Ms. Suk or Ms. Tong, our local bamboo weaving instructors. Ms. Souk and Ms. Tong live on site at the NamKhan Project and will be happy to show you how to make your own bamboo tea filter during your bamboo basket workshop.
