Luang Prabang Deaf & Mute Community Handicraft Shop

Visit the Luang Prabang Deaf & Mute Community Handicraft Shop, located near the bowling alley on the road from the stadium, watch the residents weave and farm, and purchase their products. The Sisters of Charity opened the school to teach professional skills, such as traditional Lao weaving and sewing, to the deaf and mutes so they can become autonomous. Stop by in the afternoon when they are producing bags, shirts, scarfs, carpets and other fabrics you can buy in their shop, which helps support the school. While there, inspect their garden sprouting organic vegetables, herbs, and mushrooms, and see their pigs, poultry, and fish pond.
