As one of the first original master weavers at Ock Pop Tok, Phaeng likes to stick to the basic weaves and colors, she jokes and says that “she is getting too old to remember the complicated designs, but I still love weaving”.

Working in a company like Ock Pop Tok has given Phaeng the ability to earn enough for her family, and has even employed her daughter, Ms. Sykai, who is now also a master weaver here.

Phaeng is very grateful that she is able to work in a team with many women who help and support each other, all while keeping the traditions of Lao textiles alive.
