Pure Lotus fabric

The most spiritual fabric in the world

In South Asia, the sacred Lotus is omnipresent in religious history. For decades, the flower has been identified to symbolize wisdom and spirituality. Once worn by Buddhist monks, the weaving of lotus fibre was once known and used across South East Asia without a doubt.

However, this activity began to fall into obscurity. Only the inhabitants of Inle Lake’s floating villages have continued to perpetuate this ancestral craft.

Day after day, Samatoa brings lotus fabric back to life guided by its symbolism. For Samatoa, the Lotus represents the culmination of the company’s ultimate quest for excellence.
