Above the Fray presents handwoven, naturally dyed silk, cotton, and hemp textiles selected from independent artisans, and from village markets in the hilltribe regions of Laos and Vietnam. Developed over years of visits, our close relationships with the artists enhance our ability to represent this region’s nest traditional textile arts. In an era of rapid modernization, we recognize that these traditional artists, their hereditary art forms, and their indigenous cultures will better sustain their vitality and vibrancy if broader interest is cultivated.
