If you’ve visited our Living Crafts Centre in Luang Prabang, you’re familiar with our mission and values, and you’ve most probably met some of our weavers and made some fantastic purchases from our shops. Some of you came to know about us through our social media platforms (@ockpoptok on Facebook and Instagram) and browsed our online shop (Thank you so much for your purchases. We cannot thank you enough! Your support has been so valuable those past months as Lao borders remain closed.).
What you may not know, is that we also sell our products wholesale and love working on custom orders for individuals, designers and brands. If you fall in any of those categories, check out what we can offer and drop us a line. That’s your starting point! We would love to work with you, we can’t wait to tell your story!
Our custom-made journey can start from Ock Pop Tok’s wholesale catalogue (contact us if you’d like a copy). A few months ago, we were contacted by IBU Movement following an episode of Radio Ock Pop Tok (if you haven’t checked our very own podcast yet, you definitely should!).
They wanted to work with us and really liked our kimono but wanted to add their own touch. We then worked with them to add a little something which would make it different from the kimono we sell in our shops and feature in our wholesale offer. They liked our design proposal and loved the sample. Just a few months later, the Ock Pop Tok kimono can now be bought on IBU’s website.

Fabric by the meter
If you are fond of organic fabrics or beautifully hand-dyed indigo, we can also provide fabric by the meter. Drop us a line and we’ll send you an e-brochure featuring our ready-made offer. You have something else in mind? We can design a one-of-a-kind fabric for you. Be it for apparel or home decor. Just to give you an idea, this is what we do with our fabric; jackets and blankets and so much more. What would you like made? Say it and consider it done!
We do have a 30 meter minimum order, so this might not be the best option for individuals.
Did you know that we also accept custom orders from individuals? This bedding was inspired by all the diamonds you can see on our different wall hangings. A customer ordered two sets, one in red, and one in yellow. Sure, it costs a bit more than in-store bought bedding but this set was handmade using the finest silk…
We know you just love home decor and we do too! So you bet the chairs in our Silk Road Café have been upholstered using our handmade fabric. You have a restaurant or a boutique hotel and would like to develop your own design for your furniture? The sky’s the limit…
We use the tapestry technique and organic handspun cotton for our rugs. We developed a few custom designs for customers and would love to make a whole collection of rugs for you! They might be on the smaller side (80cm wide) but they make a big impression! Send us your design!
If you see something you like on our webshop and would like it in another colour or dimension, we are a message away. We’re always happy to connect with you. It might not be possible, but it might very well be…
We’ve been working for the past months with local brand Caruso Lao to develop an exclusive collection of bags for Crowne Plaza’s gift shop, in Vientiane. It all started with a picture sent to us of an impressive textile showcasing the Naga in Crowne Plaza’s lobby. Our Design and Production team led by Mrs. Lear developed the pattern for a collection of six bags mixing organic handspun cotton and the finest Lao silk, all around the Naga! The Naga Collection has had a massive success since the launch! Inspired? Let’s talk!
