THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Marquet

Country: Thailand

Sure, cities are fertile ground for entrepreneurship, but what about networks of villages whose residents are connected through common knowledge of craft techniques practiced in their region for generations? The Thai government’s One Tambon One Product program fuels such entrepreneurship, encouraging artisans throughout clusters of villages known as tambons to come together to work on a traditional craft.

Mrs. Sunthong, a member of the Ton Fai, or “Cotton Tree” artisan group, weaves products on a traditional hand-built loom using 100% locally-grown cotton. Whereas many rural Thai are forced to leave their families and seek work in the city to earn a secondary income, the weavers work on their craft between harvesting and planting season, integrating it into their farming lifestyle.

Light and airy

Nice to have a light weight shawl/scarf for warmer weather. I have ordered it in two more colors. Hoping to find it in fussia as it was sold out.
