New to Plaosme
Ock Pop Tok
Saoban was started by PADETC, Lao NGO, as a fair trade social business that works with traditional handicraft artisans to preserve and promote Lao village crafts, create employment opportunities for villagers â mostly women â and reduce poverty.
Saoban means 'villager' in the Lao language. Saoban represents a dynamic and promising new opportunity for preserving ancient crafts and techniques, an important cultural tradition among the diverse ethnic population of Laos.
Her Works began with a journey of one lady called Tookta, who has travelled to different parts of Laos to meet people from various ethnic groups. Her sole purpose is to unveil the beauty and delicacy of the art and the handicraft works of the lesser-known ethnic minorities.
Founded in 2000 by Englishwoman Joanna (Jo) Smith and Laotian Veomanee (Veo) Douangdala, Ock Pop Tok or OPT to those 'in the know' has grown from a small shop selling only a few designs, to becoming one of the most important textile and artisanal institutions in all of Laos and South East Asia. Ock Pop Tok is now a team of over 78 employees. Ock Pop Tok (meaning "East Meets West" in Lao) was founded on the principles of fair trade and sustainable business practices. The company was pioneering social business and ethical fashion before these terms were even a part of our cultural lexicon.
