I walked to the Ock Pop Tok gallery to get the tuk-tuk to their weaving and cultural centre which was set up to preserve the arts of weaving and dyeing.
The centre is on the river bank on the outskirts of town. I had my own private guide but was hurried through as they didn’t seem to like me taking photos but I was fascinated by it all.
It’s possible to take classes there and there were 3 people doing classes while I was there; 2 girls were making traditional designs that would be dyed in indigo and a woman was learning to weave.
While I was in the shop there someone bought a beautiful wall hanging for 2,283,000 kip (about €200), actually not that expensive when you consider some of the pieces take a month to weave.
