Profile

TAEC is a women-owned social enterprise, founded in 2007 to promote Laos’ ethnic minority cultures and rural livelihoods based on traditional skills. We sell handmade pieces of textiles directly from the hands of village artisans.

In Laos, textiles represent community, belonging, and identity. We believe that by elevating artisanal crafts, investing in knowledge and skills passed down from generation to generation, time-honoured techniques can be kept alive and thriving.
