Offer: Support women weavers in rural Thailand and Laos: fair trade textiles

fairly traded, handspun, handwoven Eri silk scarf from Thailand, coloured with natural dyes

TAMMACHAT Natural Textile’s naturally dyed silks and cottons combine contemporary styling with traditional skills to bring you timeless fashion accessories and home décor. Each piece is exquisitely handwoven in limited editions. Each purchase helps a woman artisan in rural Thailand or Laos celebrate and sustain her culture, family and community.

Helping build international markets for this work is one way TAMMACHAT, a Canadian social enterprise, is making a difference. We use fair trade principles in our work: paying fair prices in the local context and paying upfront; developing long-term, committed, respectful relationships; and supporting community development. We collaborate on new designs, offering insight into the North American market.

You can help too by shopping online for these eco-friendly, handcrafted textiles that are produced using sustainable practices. Learn more at www.tammachat.com.
