Above the Fray Events

Maren at our Fine Silks and Tribal Arts Event with customers.

Above The Fray: Traditional Hilltribe Art presents "Fine Silks and Tribal Art," our colorful Pacific Northwest exhibit and sale events; our confirmed schedule is below.

Our "Fine SIlks and Tribal Art" event include a diverse array of hand-woven traditional textiles and tribal art not listed on this website, including hundreds of fine silks (starting at $15) and embroidered hemp and cotton textiles. We are especially pleased to offer the intricate traditional silks of the Tai Daeng people of Houaphon Province, Laos, created using the discontinuous supplementary-weft technique.

"Fine Silks and Tribal Art" also offers lovingly-worn baskets, jewelry, ritual and shamanic art, tools and toys made and used by the hilltribe people of Laos and Vietnam; we share an on-going slide show about the local artisans and cultures, our travels, and Mines Advisory Group (to which we donate 15% of profits) as well as displays of looms and stories of the artists.

People often comment that "Fine Silks and Tribal Art" feels like a visit to a living museum where one can touch and buy the items; many spend hours perusing the eclectic variety of textiles and other wares and learning about the diversity of hilltribe cultures and art.

We encourage you to drop by - there's no admission fee - and be dazzled!
