Description: Ban Saphai, historically the weaving capital of Champassak and largest producer of traditional Lao skirts (sin), is today the center of trade in Lao skirts and textiles in the region. To see traditional weaving visit the house of Mae Souvali. Ask for directions in Ban Saphai, which is located about 15 km north of Pakse town (see map). Many unique and traditional local patterns can be found in Ban Saphai. In addition to skirts one can also find a good variety of scarves and sashes. Across the river from Ban Saphai is Don Kho where weaving can also be seen.
