Passa Paa is a textile studio based in the heritage town of Luang Prabang in Laos, south east Asia.
Long time friends, Hongkham Xiong a Hmong/Lao artisan and Heather Smith a U.K textile designer saw a need for Hmong artisans and hemp farmers in Laos to find a market for their skills and raw materials. In 2012 Heather and Hongkham founded their studio Passa Paa (meaning The Language of Cloth in Lao language) as a place to design unique products that encorporated these local crafts and provided an income for local textile makers.
