Bamboo Weaving

Bamboo Weaving

Overview

You might have noticed large woven bamboo rubbish baskets on the streets of Luang Prabang. Many of these come from Ban Done Keo, a small but charming village located close to Ban Phanom. Here you’ll find locals sitting outside their homes with piles of stripped bamboo branches that they weave together using various patterns to make large baskets. This is not a tourist village by any means, so don’t expect any signs pointing you in any particular direction once you arrive…it’s more for the traveller who enjoys strolling around and seeing how local people make a living using traditional means.
