“A little bridge to products made with love, so forget the nightmarket”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Sure, you can stroll over the nightmarket and get yourselves some nice looking stuff. But don't be fooled, it is NOT cotton, it is NOT handmade by the sellers and the quality is poor. If you really want nice gifts to take home, or just spoil yourself, go to Kopnoï. I bought a blanket and a blouse there and I can't wait to use the soft blanket and wear the beautiful blouse. Everything is really handmade, made with love and made with an eye for quality. Cerile will tell you all about the products. Yes, they are more expensive than at the nightmarket, but at home you would pay three times as much. And it's your holiday!
Be sure to take the shop with the little stone bridge in front of the door. That's where you want to go.

“Beautiful locally made products at a Fair Trade price”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have visited Luang Prabang on 4 occasions, and Kop Noi is always part of the trip agenda.the range of locally made goods include beautiful silver jewellery, cotton table mats and runners, exquisite art on files and paper, childrens clothes... All quality control is undertaken by the owner Celine, and her commitment to Laos and its people is very evident.. All of the staff are delightful, I highly recommend this as a place to understand more about the people, their culture and its expression in the things that they create. And to take home beautiful things for you and friends.

“Great collection of locally made products.”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

We visited Kopnoi three or four times on our visit to Luang Prabang because it is such a cool little shop. Kopnoi features many artisans from Laos and offers their products to buy.

We bought several things including silk scarfs, the local rice whiskey, bamboo straws, coffee and some artwork.

Definitely a place worth finding a visiting. We really appreciated their community approach and felt very good about our purchases.

“Fairtrade and quality”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

Luang Prabang changed a lot and this shop is one more proof.
A bit expensive but nice products made by villagers. One action, two effects : help people and please your family or friends. The owner and the staff are local or in Laos since many years. Meet them and do not hesitate to speak. Go upstairs and learn, stay downstairs and please yourself.
Nice blanket 100% in coton and handmade, straws in bamboos .... The door of Kopnoi shop deserves to be pushed.

“A classy store with locally made products.”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

This store also had an exhibit about the area; it was more than just a store but also an informative experience.
