An intricate beaded pick up design

A highly talented weaver from Laos at the International Folk Art Market working on a pick up design with beads. She wove everything in her booth. Most people have no idea that such intricate designs can be woven on backstrap looms. String heddles make some of the pick up designs much easier, but she also did quite a lot of pick up with a pick up stick.

I took a short video of this weaver. Unfortunately, WordPress does not allow videos to be posted unless I upgrade my blog for a price I don’t want to pay. To watch the video, please visit my Facebook page Lisa Rayner Handwovens!
