This little shop is a treasure chest of fabulously beautiful silk. This is not a discount shop - the pieces here are exquisite and tastefully displayed. The owners were very nice and mentioned that they are opening in another location soon. I would return here.

Exquisite silk of very high quality in weaving and colouring. Modern design and most serviceminded salesperson. I completely agree with previous statement, seldom see so mild colours and high quality in Laos , but also in Thailand.

If you want comparatively inexpensive textiles, the night market will have what you want, but if you want to see outstanding quality then stop by this shop in downtown Luang Prabang. The owner is knowledgable and helpful, as is her American-born husband.
