We have just visited and bought 6 lip balms (£1 each) for our family and friends. It's a beautiful shop and makes it even better that it is fair trade. I'd recommend a visit.

A fair-trade shop showcasing the skilled artisans of Laos. They have a large selection of silks and home wares. A great place to purchase gifts as you can be sure everything is authentic and the funds are going to a good cause.

Mulberries + CAMA Crafts have a different style than most of the other Lao weaving shops - it feels like a different ethnic aesthetic, characterized by simple natural colors and geometric patterns. Quilts, pillow cases, all sorts of lovely cotton products that felt slightly reminiscent...More
