We reached this village by long tail boat and visited the weaving and textile production places here. Interesting on how these people function so well without electricity and the machines they have developed to do their work. Very friendly and hard working people.

It was very impressive to see that from lotus plant there is possible to make scarfs. On this place it is possible to see the whole technological process. And eventually to buy scarf. But they are really expensive, reflecting the amount of work necessary.
