laha quality natural textiles : luang prabang, laos
Laha Quality Natural Textiles is housed in an elegant, colonial building on Luang Prabang's main street, opposite the National Palace. It's my favorite place for souvenirs of Laos -- all handmade and woven in soft cottons and natural dyes.
All Laha goods are made by Pouthai women from the Savannakhet province in southern Laos through a socially responsible program that provides them steady income and flexibility to work from home.
The building itself is a pleasure to explore and the goods are so beautifully made and crafted. There are thick rugs, bedspreads, pillows, napkins, scarves, clothing and more. I want to move in.
