This hamlet, located on the road along the Mekong on the edge of Luang Prabang, specialises in the production of paper produced from the bark of the mulberry tree (saa paper). Here, you can see sheets drying on large frames by the side of the road or in the courtyards of family-run workshops. Either in in its natural form or incrusted with dried leaves and flowers, it is used to create parasols, notebooks, lampshades, paper lanterns etc.
