About the Brand

Ma Té Sai is a social enterprise on a mission to support communities in Laos, through partnerships with artisans - preserving cultural traditions by sharing with the world the beauty of handcrafted products.

Ma Té Sai was founded in 2010 by Emi Weir and Cleménce Pabion. At that time Clem was working for in development in remote communities in Laos, and she could see the benefits of handicraft sales for rural women, and the immediate impact that had on family life in terms of health (buying medicine) and education (being able to afford to send children to school). Emi came to Luang Prabang with many years experience in tourism and she recognised the lack of Lao products represented in the tourist markets: many cheaper handicrafts were imported, and still are from neighbouring countries. Between the two of them, they could source products around Laos and increase the income for rural families, sending the tourist dollar further out from Luang Prabang. Emi has made Luang Prabang her home and is active in the business daily.
