Her Works in Vientiane Laos
Peter and I had the great fortune to live in Laos with our boys Fynn and Noah.
We feel so privileged how the Laotians opened up their hearts and homes to us and let us experience the joy of their - bo pen yang - lifestyle.
The shop in Vientiane which I gravitated to for ethnic art, textiles, women's clothing and accessories was - Her Works.
Not only for its unique beauty in Lao design and craftsmanship but, its ethical mindset to giving back to its community and supporting ancient artistic practices.
Supporting Local Women
I invite you to go online and check out what they have.
Please note, we are not getting any kickbacks from them!
We just want to support their beautiful work and share the joy that we received from buying their textiles.
From the horse's mouth:
Her Works directly liaise with skilful tailors, crafters, and artisans, all of whom are local women from many ethnic groups.
We help to provide them with new ideas and innovative approaches to bring the best out of their respective arts.
We fairly compensate their passionate works & there have been many jobs created due to the high demand of Her Works' products
Her Works will continue to promote economic growth and better quality of lives in many more rural areas in Laos
We continue to enhance our production process to make sure we maintain and improve our product quality as we grow
We value the dignities and capability of our Lao women from all ethnic groups
We promote and endorse the uniqueness of the Lao arts, which is embedded in our product DNA, to the whole world
Why not go to their website and take a look at what they have to offer!
Please support these wonderful women by sharing this article on social media.
