Today’s interviewee is Lily form Laos. She introduces “SINH” as cool culture.

The sinh is a traditional long skirt worn by Lao and Thai women. Wearing sinhs is deeply rooted in Laos. Each sinh has different patterns because they are all handmade. Sinhs vary a lot how much they cost depends on fabrics form $30 to $3,000 at most.  Usually, they are made of silk or cotton. Silk is more expensive than cotton and worn in special ceremony such as wedding ceremony.
