Noteworthy: This unique jewelry is from the same master craftsmen who produced jewelry for the Royal Family. As Laos’ culture evolves, many of the master handcraft skills are being lost. By supporting these crafts, you help to sustain the community culture and supply much needed income, preventing families from having to migrate to the city to find commoditized, low paying work. A portion of your purchase also goes to PADETC, a non-profit alternative learning school in Vientiane, Laos. It will help provide basic resources to prepare young leaders for their changing world.
