  • Tradition & Innovation

We operate on a platform of fair trade that is reflected in everything we do. We are committed to taking care of the environment, honouring and respecting traditions, paying good wages (including benefits such as health insurance, paid leave, and profit sharing) and cultivating local and international markets that provide a sustainable source of income for Lao artisans and their communities.

Fair Trade

Laos is an ethnically diverse country and each group has its unique textile traditions. We encourage people to discover Laos through its textiles. To facilitate this, we collaborate with communities around the country to showcase their distinct skills and designs and honor their traditions and crafts.

Collaborate with Communities

We are an international team that shares a common passion for textiles and cultural exchange, working together in ways that are creative positive and fun.

Handmade in Laos

We start with the finest, locally sourced natural and organic raw materials and oversee all aspects of production to ensure the highest quality products. Our products reflect a balance between tradition and innovation. Societies are dynamic and evolving and we believe that traditional crafts should be too. Our work is rooted in the textile traditions of Laos, however we appreciate and nurture innovation in our products and designs.

Natural & Organic

We are strong supporters of women’s empowerment promoting economic stability and leadership opportunities for women, as they are the driving force behind Ock Pop Tok and the entire handicrafts industry.
