🌍New colorful light scarves from Laos arrived in our space by Thomas Swierts.✌️😬 The scarves are from Ban Sop Jam, which is known in Laos as 'the weaving village of the North'. The women of the village spend around two or three hours a day weaving beautiful patterns in fine fabrics. The patterns on these scarves are specific for the region, and even passed on for generations in most families. It can take up to two or even three weeks to finish one scarf. These scarves are a way for the women to become more independent and empowered. We buy the products directly from the makers to make sure the profit ends up in the right place. Our mission is to connect these women, through their beautiful products, to the rest of the world. By documenting the maker of each scarf we bring the maker and user closer together.🌏 #hearthamsterdam #helppeople #helppeopleinneed #helptheplanet #depijp #depijpamsterdam #albertcuyp #albertcuypmarkt #vegan #veganamsterdam #veganrecipes #vegansushi #livemusic #laos #scarves @ H/eart.h
