With her mother as a weaver, Ms. Bousavard, or known by her nickname, Vard, learnt weaving at a young age. She loves many different weaving techniques and colors as it continues to challenge her to try new patterns and techniques.
She enjoys Ock Pop Tok because “many of the weavers have great skills that we can learn from and exchange with each other.”
She has two children. Vard believes Laos will pick up in tourism in the next few years and she hopes that the culture of textiles will also become more famous as a result.
