We visited the most famous Weaving Team in the village. This team is, in fact, the most celebrated in all of Thailand. They execute only bespoke weaving, creating unique items in designs drawn by the Famous Artist who also owns the Team.
The first image is a view into the large hall that contaims 5 looms. You can see one loom, operated by the woman in the pink shirt who is assisted by two Programmers who have the intricate task of interpreting the Artist's design according to the verry complex program that is the string, knots and bamboo slivers shown in the second image.
There is a deep bacement below the hall of looms...we went down to see what was there, and discovered another Weever's assistant who had responsibility for keeping the program from becoming tangled.
