Vietnam side trip – weaving!

Ribbon yardage before cutting – Photo by Serena Harrigan – Textile Odyssey

Let’s swing over to Vietnam for a moment and take a break from the dye pot.  In January 2012 I visited northern Vietnam with Textile Odyssey Tours.   The looms, the people and the colorful ethnic clothing were fabulous.  I’ve posted some info in my trip journal.  Take a moment and glance at the simple looms used to create these colorful textiles.  Above are the Lo or Lao people showing me their yardage of ribbons.  The white stripes are the dividing lines that are used to cut the ribbons apart for placement in their skirts and jackets.  Enjoy!
