T'Shop Lai Gallery information
Easily Vientiane's finest shopping experience – step into this palace of the senses and the first thing you notice is the melange of aromas: coconut, aloe vera, honey, frangipani and magnolia; all of them emanate from the body oils, soaps, sprays, perfumes and lip balms that are made and beautifully packaged by self taught parfumier , Michel 'Mimi' Saada. Next check out the tortoise shell–inlaid furniture – a hint of Bauhaus fused with traditional Lao – and the old apothecary units beguilingly stocked with illumined antique bottles. Cards, bangles, prints, fountain pens... these wonderful objets d'art and products are all made with sustainable, locally sourced products, and by disadvantaged women who make up the Les Artisans Lao cooperative. Inspired.
