The Katu ethnic group is one of the Austroasiatic groups in southern Laos known for creating beaded designs onto a handwoven cloth.  They use a back-strap body-tension looms by threading beads onto the weft and inlaying it into the cloth. Formerly made from tiny, hard seeds of the Job's tears plant, the beads are now made with plastic. Shapes such as flowers and Buddha leaves are very common in their traditional designs.

This utilitarian textile was traditionally used as a shawl, though using it in home décor-as a wall hanging or table runner has become more popular.
