We have never stopped by Ra Noe’s apartment and not “caught” her weaving. Her artistry is more than her livelihood–it’s her passion. Ra Noe is a member of the Karen hill tribe and escaped persecution in Burma to settle with her family in Austin. She is well-regarded in Austin’s Karen community and her scarves are sure to be the darling of our new fall line.
If you own one of Ra Noe’s products (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.
