Founded in 2000 by Englishwoman Joanna (Jo) Smith and Laotian Veomanee (Veo) Douangdala, Ock Pop Tok or OPT to those ‘in the know’ has grown from a small shop selling only a few designs, to becoming one of the most important textile and artisanal institutions in all of Laos and South East Asia. Ock Pop Tok is now a team of over 78 employees. Meet the rest of the team here!
Ock Pop Tok (meaning “East Meets West” in Lao) was founded on the principles of fair trade and sustainable business practices. The company was pioneering social business and ethical fashion before these terms were even a part of our cultural lexicon.
The partnership between these two women dates back to 1999 when Jo was on an EU funded assignment to photograph development projects in northern Laos. At that time Veo was carving out her own unique niche and making a name for herself among the Lao artisan community. Coming from a family rich with textile and artisan roots, Veo was constantly challenging old ways and methods. She was designing unique sinhs (traditional skirts) and patterns that differentiated her from her peers.
While Veo was busy trailblazing a new path for Lao textiles, Jo was becoming increasingly enamoured with the intricate weavings and the women who produced them. Veo’s creativity attracted Jo like a magnet as she was looking for like-minded artists with whom to collaborate. They had a shared commitment to preserving and promoting these textiles and a similar creative energy. Seizing the opportunity when Veo asked Jo if she wanted to work together on a permanent basis, the answer was “Of course I bloody do!”
