Why Ock Pop Tok Store is special ?

The store offers a wide range of many beautiful and unique items, scarves, jackets, table runners, shawls…that you cannot buy in the night market or anywhere in the world. This company was started by a British and a Laotian women who employ local village people to utilise their ancient skills to hand make wonderful garments and accessories. There is also a free tour to the factory where you can meet the artists. Everything is hand made, the amount of time and talent that goes into each item is substantial. The quality and style of the work here is outstanding. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about discussing the various methods and meanings behind the crafts being displayed.

How to get to Ock Pop Tok Store?

You should ask the locals to tell you about this place. Then you will stop by the river shop, and got a great tour of the facility from 2 of the young weekend staff there (Felix & Mone).

After a tour of the store there, you are offered a free tuk-tuk ride to the main facility for a tour of where many of these local textiles are produced about 10 minutes at city street speed. It is a private tuk-tuk in great shape, and the driver waited until you are done to return you to town, and again is a service provided by Ock Pop Tok.

The shops has many beautiful items, scarves, jackets, table runners, shawls, etc. We have brought a few items home with us and are finding them well made and beautiful - I wish I would have brought a few more as gifts. There is also a free tour to the factory where you can meet the artists. Everything is hand made, the amount of time and talent that goes into each item is substantial. Even at the set prices you are getting a bargain. This is a great shop, doing wonderful work, selling beautiful items.
