The production of silk, weaving and embroidery are ancestral riches of traditional Laotian art and deserve to be better known.
Because everyone has the right to live with dignity from their work, Mai Savanh Lao, which means Silk from Paradise, works with underprivileged populations to support and promote their crafts, while respecting the principles of fair trade.
This product "handmade" in Laos may represent some irregularities which are the hallmark of craftsmanship and thus recall its uniqueness.
We have opted for a “Non-profit” type structure and all the profits are reinvested in the activities.
Mai Savanh Lao was awarded the “Fair Trade” label by the WFTO in 2009.
