MA TÉ SAI

Ma Té Sai, based in Luang Prabang, works with artisans from many ethnic groups in Laos, including Lao, TaiLeu, Hmong, Akha, Katu, Yao, Lentan, and Khmu. Each group creates items that embrace and demonstrate their rich traditions and cultures. Since 2013, Ma Té Sai has been training various communities around Laos to sew – these include the TaiLeu women in Nambak district, Luang Prabang; Sengsavang, a centre for women at risk of trafficking in Savannakhet, South Laos; and women from Tai Daeng, Tai Dam, Lanten and Hmong ethnic communities in Luang Namtha, Northern Laos. These communities use traditional textiles produced in their areas, converting them into garments and homewares. By empowering women to sew, Ma Té Sai is able to support village production whole-heartedly, and to co-create modern handcrafted items for your lifestyle.
