Ma Té Sai

+856 071 260 654
Ma Té Sai means “Where is it from?” in Lao language. As a social enterprise based in Luang Prabang, 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 handicrafts; some are farmers growing local produce; and some are disadvantaged, working in city centres, where they are developing new skills and a better life.
