- Among the cheap stalls and fake goods on the Khao San Road, this shop stands out for promoting traditional handicrafts for the tourist market. Souvenirs bought here will benefit groups such as hill tribe communities, tsunami survivors, and a Laotian farmers cooperative. The aim of the shop is to promote self-reliance and preserve traditions while ensuring these groups receive a fair return. Lofty Bamboo offers beautiful woven fabrics, clothing, embroideries, silver goods, and coffees. Shopping for souvenirs here will ensure the producer benefits rather than the middleman.
