This is a very sophisticated hand-made fabric technique. A tight and solid undyed cotton is used as the canvas for the drawings. It is then undergone the indigo dying process for a number of times before becoming the table cloth This is the lesson that has been taught from generation to generation for the locals, especially Hmong in Bokeo Province, the North of Laos. Maly Indigo has closely worked with a local family in Bokeo to co-create the patterns on the fabrics which is not very far away from traditional patterns that the locals get used to.
