Karen Scarves from Thailand

Title

Karen Scarves from Thailand

Description

These are hand woven scarves brought to us by Peh Wah Mu, a refugee from Burma who now lives in Lincoln, NE. The scarves were made by hand from cotton by women in refugee camps in Thailand. These scarves are worn by women either over their shoulders or over their heads. These woven goods are often the only artifacts the Karen refugees typically bring with them to the United States.
