Well I wasn't expecting much out of this shop, but it turned out to be lovely! I bought tea (I love tea!) and a soap, and a lot of scarves and shawls. They will be put to good use when visiting temples!

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.
