Lao-based social enterprise Ock Pop Tok was honoured by the Wild Asia Responsible Tourism Awards as the Best in Cultural Preservation for 2014. This is the first time that a Laotian organization has ever been acknowledge by the Wild Asia Responsible Tourism Initiative; a historic moment for both Ock Pop Tok and Lao culture.

“We are humbled to be recognized in our mission to celebrate and share Laos’ textile heritage through our sustainable tourism,” said Veomanee Douangdala, Co-Founder, Ock Pop Tok. “Since 2000, our passion for textiles and cultural exchange has motivated my team and me to create a holistic experience for our guests. We only hope we can inspire others to participate in their own cultural preservation.”

Ock Pop Tok’s Living Crafts Centre provides classes and workshops focused on weaving, natural dyes, batik and bamboo weaving, while the Silk Road Café serves locally sourced and organic Lao cuisine. Their Mekong Villa is designed in keeping with Lao ethnic groups, showcasing the culture of the surrounding region in their decor. The Village Weaver Projects is a partnership with local NGOs across 11 Lao provinces connecting artisans to markets. This commitment to the history, culture, and community of Lao are what convinced the panel of international judges to select Ock Pop Tok for the Best in Cultural Preservation Award.

The Wild Asia Responsible Tourism Awards are based on the UNWTO Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria and is one of the first tourism awards in Asia especially focused on sustainable tourism best practices. Established in 2006 by Wild Asia, this annual award seeks out tourism operators who are making a positive difference in their communities by adopting sustainable management.
