Soie de Lune
Founded in 2004, London-based Soie de Lune produced bespoke hand weaves at their own mill in Vientiane, Laos- a country in South East Asia famous for its hand weaving skills. Soie de Lune’s double mission is to create unrivaled fabrics of quality and to join those helping to revive the area’s hand weaving, a centuries-old tradition in danger of being lost in the world of mass-production.
At their workshop, the process of fabric creation is manual, echoing days gone by when each house had its own loom and when each mother taught her daughter the skills of weaving. Today they continue this tradition as their young team of artisans, from dyers to weavers, follows the fabric creation process taught to them by their parents in villages throughout the country.
