Dream Weavers is the place to go if you’re looking for souvenirs in Pakse not only because they sell such quality products, but they also support a great cause -- helping local Lao women leave the sex trade.
Dream Weavers, the homely shop just across the Monument of Books, always has attractive products on display — its bright, colourful scarves, wallets, unique bags, and beautiful wood carvings are just too hard to ignore. In some days, a number of women can be found working with looms and weaving colourful textiles — most of these women were rescued from trafficking and have now found a way to support their life by producing items for Dream Weavers. Just as the shop’s name implies, when you buy at Dream Weavers, you don’t only find quality items, you also support dreams.
Dream Weavers is located in Pakse’s town centre.
