Evaluation

Lao dyeing techniques have been handed down as a valuable source of cash income for each household. However, along with the westernization of clothes, weavers needed to develop new categories. Carpet production started in just such a context. This effort including programs to train new weavers as well as the securing of local weavers has created a major transformation. We appreciate that the creation of a production system is one example that changed the social structure.
