This operation consists of a small team of mainly female artisans based on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand. The workers are nurtured and supported, leading to a loyal and motivated workforce.
10 full time, highly skilled artisans work in the studio designing and making necklaces and bracelets, along with about 15 - 20 home workers who do the beading. Workers earn at least 35% above the national minimum wage, they get their lunch paid for and their medical care. The workers are offered good working hours - overtime is voluntary and never exceeds 12 hours per week.
Staff are involved in the decision making process giving them a sense of empowerment unusual for this type of industry.
Our necklace with black and assorted cream beads has been made by this Fair Trade producer group.
