Coming from a weaving family in the Huaphan province, Daolika learnt how to weave very early at 8 years old by observing her mother at home. She loves that at Ock Pop Tok she’s given different projects to work on, but prefers the Chok technique because of the complexity of the design. She enjoys the company of all the Master Weavers who work here, as they can exchange ideas and help each other, which enables her to learn more – she hopes that Laos will be famous for textiles in the future to and plans to teach her daughter how to weave if she has one, “because the weaving is a beautiful tradition that should be kept alive for the next generation.” If she’s not weaving, you’ll find Dailika singing and finding new music or writing poetry.
