Ock Pop Tok has two distinct locations in Luang Prabang to help you discover Laos through textiles in our shops. Each shop focuses on a different aspect of the diverse range of textiles that one finds in Laos. Visit all three to experience the range of beauty that we have to offer from vintage textiles, to work from villages around the country, to high fashion pieces made using traditional techniques. You will see the difference high quality, locally sourced, handmade textiles make.
Our Living Crafts Centre, set on the banks of the stunning Mekong River, is the perfect place to spend some time for visitors of all ages. Here you will find something for everyone! You can enjoy our free 30 minute tour of the centre where you’ll observe the weavers at work and marvel at the complex techniques they use. You’ll learn how silk is made from cocoon to yarn, watch the batik master at work and be shown where the beautiful natural dye colors come from.
If you have more time you can take our half day or full day workshops in batik, weaving, dyeing or bamboo. You are welcome to browse our Flagship Shop which houses selections from both the Heritage and Boutique shops. Here you will have the opportunity to shop items from all of our collections. The Flagship Shop has a specific focus on the textiles woven by the onsite weavers. What better way to experience fair trade than to meet the artisan who created your new purchase! End your time by enjoying a relaxing meal or cocktail on the Mekong Terrace in our Silk Road Café with one of the best views in town.
Open Daily 8.30AM – 5.30PM
Located 10 minutes from town on the edge of the Mekong River
