Took a full day of lessons at Ock Pop Tok, 1/2 day dying and 1/2 day weaving. Could not have had a better day. The instructor was knowledgeable (and very funny), the participants interesting (they are interested in textiles, of course they’d be interesting :) and the location straight out of a movie-set. My only regret is that I didn’t have time in my travel schedule to come back for a second day of weaving.
thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review!
It's truly appreciated by all of us here at Ock Pop Tok, especially our course instructors who strive to not only educate but also make sure our students and guests enjoy their experience to the fullest!
We hope that if you ever return to Luang Prabang that we can welcome you here again! Make sure to look at our updated website for new classes & workshops! Maybe even a seminar next time with friends? :)

I really like this place because I knew I was getting the real deal from women who crafted these scarves or other items from their villages. And they get to reap the rewards too. Each woman was pictured on the wall with a description of where she lives and what kind of weaving she does. I knew that these items came from Laos....not China! I support this kind of shop.

A great chance to get up close and observe weavers in action at multiple looms.
They also run weaving classes and dyeing classes as well as tours around the facility.
Luang Prabang is an expensive place to shop for higher end articles and here is no different.
If you lack the confidence or do not have the time to source what you need elsewhere, at least here I believe the quality is above average.
No negotiations required and all items have a price tag.
Low pressure so you can browse without being hassled.
A beautiful garden setting overlooking the river.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review!
All of us here at Ock Pop Tok are glad to hear it!
We take a lot of pride collaborating with communities and local initiatives around Laos, as well as being a source of economic opportunity for these rural villages, especially since it's allowed us to showcase a variety of beautiful products and help people discover Laos through textiles!
We look forward to welcoming you again soon, either at our stores or at our Cafe overlooking the river ;)

This is an amazing group of shops. All hand made items from different villages and the workmanship is wonderful. I would definitely recommend this place for shopping . The textiles and cloth items are beautifully done. A most see.
Thank you so much for your review of our shops. All of us here at Ock Pop Tok are glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience.
We take pride in collaborating with communities around the country to create beautiful quality products that allow people to discover Laos through these textiles.
We look forward to welcoming you again the next time that you are in Luang Prabang. And don't forget to tell your friends.

This is not a current review, was there a few years ago, but realize this spot has become only better. Was there with a group and we had a total blast dying our own silk scarf.....food was delicious and staff wonderful teachers.
thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! We really appreciate it - even more so if you were here a few years ago and have come back to visit us again.
We'll make sure to give the great feedback to our dyeing teachers as well!
If you're ever back in town, make sure to let us know and have a look at our updated class schedule online ;)
All the best,
