Lovely shop, Beautiful product
Jan 2020
Just in case you don't have a chance to go out to the LIving Craft Centre on the river, the shop is right in the middle of town. It's a mini museum of Lao craft and textiles with lovely things displayed for inspection and sale in an old traditional building in a lovely garden with a cafe appended.
If you do want to expand your Ock Pop Tok experience, then there is a free tuktuk standing by to whisk you out there and bring you back. Just ask the sales staff.
There are clean toilets on site also.

High quality, locally made products.
Feb 2020
They have several locations, we visited them all. We loved the products which are beautifully made (and displayed in the store), they seem a little expensive compared to others you see in town, but the quality is great. Don’t make the mistake we made which was to not buy something because we couldn’t decide, and we now regret that as we are back home.

Dear nicholaswillmott, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and appreciation for our work. We operate on a platform of fair trade and pay our artisan collaborators fair wages, including annual leave and medical benefits. While this add to the cost, we feel like there is tremendous value in keeping traditional skills in use and providing livelihood opportunities. -- If you would like to buy something, please check out our online shop and/or send us an email describing what you wish you had bought and we'll be happy to ship it you! Cheers, The Ock Pop Tok Team

Best Products
Jan 2020
Probably the best shop in town! It is expensive related to the other shops and the city itself, but the prices are reasonable if you compare it to European standards. The products are high quality, silk, organic, hand-made and unique. They have traditional artists who make them and really one of a kind! The staff is also very kind and helpful.

Great Products and locally made by artisans
Dec 2019
We visited the OPT store after our late afternoon craft experience making silk tie dyed scarves. We bought several pieces of crafts hand woven and silk handmade scarves. We loved the way that the arts and crafts were displayed on walls, tables, banquets, etc. The staff was extremely helpful.

Beautiful products and attentive staff
Sep 2019
My partner and I had the chance to visit the living crafts center for a tour about the Ock Pop Tok business. We went on to get some silk scarfs and cushion covers as gifts for family and friends. The products on offer are very nicely colored and beautifully done. Staff in the shop was very helpful, too.

Beautiful Locally Made Goods
Jun 2019 • Solo
High quality hand woven goods from local artisans. Lots of color here along with a range of items; wall-hangings, clothing, purses. Prices reflect the quality of getting a meticulous piece of art by a Lao craftsperson.

Thank you for the 4-star rating! Yes, but please note that the reason why our products are priced slightly higher than other places is to reflect our company mission, which is to uphold fair trade values of producing high quality, authentic, handmade products using the finest natural and raw materials. Glad you enjoyed our cafe as well and we hope to see you again very soon! :) Regards, Hilary and the Ock Pop Tok team

Beautiful local craft products, very arty
May 2019 • Solo
I much more appreciate the products after the class knowing how much labor work it involves. The wall hangings are lovely, and so are the small craft products (bag,scarfs, little wallets etc...) . It is a bit expensive for me but was interesting to see.

I did get a bundle of bamboo straws for 2 USD which the tuk tuk driver told me that it should cost 1 USD. For me its fine but for them its a huge deal.

I still recommend going there and have a look. Their proceeds goes into support in growing the women working community in Laos, so your money is always used for good cause
