Our Business Aligns

with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Poverty Reduction

Many of our artisans are in remote communities. We are able to increase income for their families through providing access to markets their networks are unable to reach.

Responsible Production

Our products are locally made with natural materials by the hands of artisans we trust. We strive for low environmental impact, whilst preserving culture and providing income.

Supporting Women

We trade and provide training for our women artisans, and we support the Lao Disabled Womens Development Centre in Sengsaveng, a centre for women at risk of trafficking and abuse.

Support. Preserve. Share.

Ma Té Sai is a social enterprise on a mission to SUPPORT communities in Laos, through partnerships with artisans. Our mission is to PRESERVE cultural traditions and SHARE the beauty of handcrafted products with the world.
