The Monks of Laos taking a break , obviously something has caught their eye!!
The robes they wear are known as "The Saffron Robes" because the original monks made their robes from discarded cloth found in rubbish heaps and on cremation grounds and after washing, the robe cloth was boiled with vegetable matter -- leaves, roots and flowers -- and often spices, which would turn the cloth some shade of orange. Hence the name, "saffron robe."
Monks today wear robes made of cloth that is donated or purchased, but in Southeast Asia the cloth usually is still dyed in spice colors.
