Meet the Artisans

About Thai Jewellery, Bangkok

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 and their medical care paid for. The workers are offered comfortable 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.
