Caruso has beautiful crafts and artwork. We purchased four sets of salad servers in various woods and the store wrapped them for us in bubble wrap to carry in our luggage. Unfortunately, when we started to give these as gifts, we were embarrassed to find that two of the sets had broken pieces. Caruso handled this graciously and replaced them, sending two new sets after I sent them photos of the broken items. They were responsive and very polite. Not only will you find beautiful crafts in this lovely store, but you will be dealing with honest merchants. Highly recommended.

This shop only has the best available in the country in the best finishes and is therefore expensive by Lao standards. The handicrafts available here are of the finest quality and design and is well worth a visit for the discerning eye and a bountiful pocket.

Most of the things they have here are upmarket and classy. Expensive of course by Lao standards. For me the figurines and objects made with ebony were exquisite. They had three variants of ebony and the black and tan ones were exotic.

If you are looking for world class asian crafts and home items you have found the place. The design is amazing and is done by her own staff. The quality is beyond any I have seen anywhere in Asia and , yes, some of prices are not for the faint of heart. But worth every penny.

They can ship anywhere and you must take your time. This is like being in a museum!!!!

Enjoy!
