Ministry of Silk

Vientiane Shopping

    Ministry of Silk offers ready-to-wear clothes with modern Lao designs and a selection of traditional jewellery, accessories, and bags. Most are one-of-a-kind pieces made from silk (naturally). You’ll find cocktail dresses, scarves, overcoats, and business shirts of various styles. You can even have these clothes customised according to your size and preference.

    The designers at Ministry of Silk combine elegant western fashion trends with intricate details of Southeast Asian embroidery and materials. Bespoke dresses at Ministry of Silk cost around $250 and blouses are around $150. Prices may be higher than most boutiques in Vientiane, but you’ll be paying for quality and style.

    Ministry of Silk is located on Namphou Square in central Vientiane – its immaculate white shopfront is easily recognisable. The air-conditioned boutique features local artwork on the walls, while comfy sofas are great for relaxing on while your significant other browses through its extensive collection.
