Oo is a sweet spirit with a heartbreaking past. Her husband was a Karenni soldier who was killed in the fighting in Burma. She also struggles with hearing loss, so language learning has been challenging. She is surrounded by the love and support of her mother and five (of her 9) siblings, who all live in the Austin area. Oo spends time with her daughter and enjoys weaving when she can.
If you own one of Oo’s bags (or simply want to send a message), please feel free to write her a note in the comments below. We will share them with her. Eventually, we’d like every artisan to be able to write you back on her own.
