from the village, for the village
Ma Té Sai means “where is it from?” in Lao language.
We handpick and design 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 workshops in villages of Vientiane, where they are developing new skills and a better life.
All are proud and happy to share their skills and traditions with you, and we want you to share this connection with our artisans as much as we want to ensure them a fair and sustainable income.
