From the Village, For the Village
Ma Té Sai means “where is it from?” in Lao language. We select and co-create beautiful gifts, textiles and homewares handmade by people from villages across Laos. Some of our artisans are from remote and rural Laos, making traditional handicraft; some are farmers growing local produce; and some are disadvantaged, working in city centres, where they are developing new skills and a better life.
All are proud and happy to share their skills and traditions with you. we want you to share this connection with our artisans as much as we want to ensure them a fair and sustainable income.

Dreaming of Luang Prabang?
Luang Prabang has been severely affected, and our weavers, sewers, makers are all happy we've ben able to keep up some orders through support overseas. Borders are slowly opening, tourists visas are possible from Jan 2020 if you book your stay through an agent. If you are looking for less restrictive travel, the plan is to open the country further in April.
