Much like many of the other Master Weavers here at Ock Pop Tok, Mrs. Jone learned weaving at the age of ten and started mastering patterns at the age of twelve.

Her favourite by far is the Chok weaving technique because the design looks so interesting. She loves working together with the other Master Weavers as the work environment is always fun. Everyone helps each other if there are any problems or struggles.

Ms. Jone says that she really loves her home country. She believes that textiles are a true symbol of Laos and hopes that “the promotion of textiles to the global market will draw more people here.”
