TAEC Boutique brings together quality handicrafts from 12 provinces of Laos. Centrally located on the main street in Luang Prabang in Ban Vat Sene, the boutique is a sister shop to the Museum Shop of the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre.
Working directly with 33 different villages in 12 provinces, TAEC helps communities to retain their traditional knowledge about working with natural materials including bamboo, mulberry, cotton, silk, and hemp. Recognizing the need to support skilled artisans as the market becomes saturated with mass-produced, cheaper goods, TAEC created the Heirloom Collection. These one-of-a-kind pieces showcase weaving, embroidery, and applique. TAEC provides a certificate of authenticity for each piece and they can be exported without contributing to the damaging antiques trade.
TAEC Boutique offers a range of products including handmade jewelry, clothes, bags, decorative pieces, and textiles.
Open Daily 9 AM to 9 PM
