Ock Pop Tok, meaning “East Meets West” in Laos, was founded in the year 2000 by the two ladies Veomanee (Veo) Douangdala and Joanna (Jo) Smith. Ock Pop Tok was established on the principles of fair trade and sustainable business practices and was a pioneering social business and ethical fashion before these terms were even a part of Lao’s cultural lexicon. The business has grown from a small idea of the two passionate women, to then a tiny shop, to finally one of the most important textile and artisan institutions in all of Laos and Southeast Asia.
