    The Design

    We co-designed each accessory with our Fair Trade production partners, locally source the materials, and engage a network of Hill Tribe weavers & artisans to support production in homes around Northern Thailand.

  • The Weaving

    Our process starts in the mountains of Northern Thailand, where Na la and Na Shi, skilled Lahu Hill Tribe artisans weave hundreds of threads on a back-strap loom to create these vibrant, beautiful "raw" textiles.

  • The Production

    From the mountains to the city of Chiang Mai, a network of indigenous women artisans take the "raw" woven textiles and trimmings home to transform them into beautiful, high quality pieces made to last for years.
