Origin of the Products

Our products originate in Northern Thailand and are all made by the local people. Our hilltribe silver is all made by the Karen people and provides much needed income in the villages. It also enhances community life, as villagers don't have to leave the area to find jobs. By purchasing the crafts that we have on this website you are supporting the skills and livelihoods of many Northern Thailand communities.
