We are still in Loei, Isan and having a marvelous time. Today we went to the village of Tai Dam people. You can read about them in Wikipedia here.

They make their own fabric with 100% cotton threads, mainly in black and some blue. There wasn't many selections of fabric that day, but I couldn't resist these two pieces so they'll come home with me. The top piece has smaller threads and softer. It measured at 4 meters which is about 4.37 yards. The bottom piece has thicker threads and tighter weave so it's a little stiffer. The measurement is 3.5 meters which is about 3.83 yards. The width of the fabric, from salvage to salvage, is one meter or 39.37 inches which is the width of their loom.

May the fabric fairy watch over you!!!
