In her workshop, Desak and the older artisans generously teach their art to the younger artisans, preserving for another generation this UNESCO cultural treasure.

"Wearable Art! Lounge wear/Robe"
It doesn't matter your favorite pattern as I have several and have gifted these beautiful robes as well! They are so pretty, comfortable and look great inside and even for lounge wear around the pool, walking the dog, taking the kids to school with leggins and a tank top, checking the mail...no matter what you like to wear a robe for-with these beauties, you'll find you can wear them out and people will stop you and want to know about them!
