Louise Loubatieres

Born and raised in London and of Franco-Vietnamese heritage, I have been a Londoner my entire life. In 2013 I decided to travel to Siem Reap and open a lifestyle boutique.

After receiving a BA in Textiles at Chelsea College of Art, followed by an MA in Menswear Fashion at the prestigious Royal College of Art, I worked in the fashion industry for a number of years, before moving to Siem Reap in 2013 to start my own business.

The boutique was born out of a love of beautiful things, a passion for travel and a desire to mix the old with the new, using traditional local craft methods and applying them to a modern design aesthetic.

With a strong emphasis on colour and texture, the boutique is a mix of beautifully designed, crafted and selected contemporary products and accessories.

The boutique-come-gallery stocks lacquer home-ware, ceramic-ware, a range of textiles as well as a collection of silk and cotton fashion accessories.  You will also find antique treasures such as silverware sourced from UK antique markets, old French weaving print patterns and other items picked up along my travels.

I also design for my brother’s successful interiors company Nom Living which sells and ships worldwide.
