Tai Lue weavers from the north river region of the Lao People's Democratic Republic create complex and colorful patterns such as those in this Nam Lai tapestry. The words nam lai mean "river flow" in Lao; thus, the inspiration for this piece is the natural river current. Nam Lai designers are inspired by the area's mountainous landscape and often feature motifs of waterways, lightning, and mountain ranges in their creations.
The fair trade cotton piece, replicated in this archival St. Frank print, is hand-woven using a freestyle weaving technique in which naturally dyed cotton yarns are wrapped around a warp to create the bold pattern. This woven design is visible on the back as well as the front of the cloth.
