Above the Fray-Traditional Hilltribe Art - Spouses Josh Hirschstein & Maren Beck venture to the remote hill-tribe regions of Laos and Vietnam to personally select the world's most exquisite hand woven naturally dyed silk, cotton and hemp textiles directly from independent hill-tribe artisans. Our diverse selection of textiles is woven of locally raised material using traditional materials, methods and motifs. Above the Fray passionately supports the artisans and their traditional skills and diverse cultures and we are eager to share our knowledge, pictures and stories as well as the incredible woven art of these peoples. 541-485-9386
