Patricia has published numerous books and articles on Thai and Lao textiles (see books), some times under the pen name Patricia Naenna. She has contributed to many international exhibitions including “Indigo textiles-Laos, Japan, and Nigeria”, “Lanna Textiles- Yuen, Lue, Lao”, “Textiles and the Tai Experience in Southeast Asia” and “Textiles of Asia: A Common Heritage”.
Her relationship with the weavers throughout Thailand and Laos inspired her to bring them together and form the Weavers For the Environment (WFE) women's group which aims to improve the well being of weavers and the environment that surrounds them. For example, twenty young weavers in a small village in Chomtong District, Chiang Mai were trained to weave in silk rather than cotton. This was a lifetime opportunity for the weavers to improve their weaving skills and ability to earn a better income. Members of the WFE weave in their homes in many different provinces of Thailand. Studio Naenna is the only outlet for their wonderful textiles.
You may experience these textiles at our main gallery:
