At Sao Sinh, we want to help visitors appreciate the traditional sinh of Laos and experience Luang Prabang wearing the country’s beautiful textiles. Wearing traditional clothing is respected by local people, particularly when visiting temples, and helps to keep alive the feeling of Luang Prabang’s history and heritage.
Discover the beauty of Luang Prabang and Lao traditional clothing with Sao Sinh.
Sao Sinh is Luang Prabang’s only “rent and roam” traditional Lao clothing service, offering high quality sinh, pha bieng, blouses, and trousers for women, men, and children of all sizes! This is a great add-on for baci ceremonies, temple visits, almsgiving, and special dinners! Sao Sinh’s shop is located in Ban Vat Sene.
“Sinh” means the traditional skirt of Laos, and “Sao” means “to rent” or “young woman”—butyou don’t have to be young woman to rent our sinh or clothing! We want everyone and anyone—families, friends, children, grandparents—to be able to experience the beauty and heritage of Lao traditional clothing
