Lao Cotton

In 1984, the Lao Government and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have funded a project to help the Lao Women, by preserving their traditional weaving skills under the name of “Lao Women Handicraft Training Center” (Lao WHTC). The objective of Lao WHTC was to provide jobs and opportunities for all Lao Women, to preserve and keep their traditional skill in weaving of cotton and silk alive. Later in 1996, it has extended and evolved to be Lao Cotton State Enterprise Company and to date offering both employment opportunites for Lao women and Lao cotton products to local and international market.
