Evaluation

In the forests in Laos, there grows plenty of trees that produce natural dyes. Silk fabric dyed with extracts from the trees used to be closely related to the life of the people. Due to the rapid economic change, silk fabric seems to disappear gradually from everyday life. Under such circumstances, KACHANA supports the self-reliance of women, and leads a campaign to protect the dyeing culture. Their adopted design has a motif of patterns symbolizing religion and the customs of their ethnic group in order to enable the people in Laos to wear silk clothes again on a daily basis. We have appreciated them for this.
