This clutch purse was hand quilted by a group of women in a rural village on the Thai-Laos border. These women were carefully trained at a Thai Village vocational skills training. The training was conducted in order to help these women gain marketable skills and earn sustainable income. Now, they are supporting themselves and their families through this art of quilting.

The purchase of this ethical trade clutch purse helps to provide training, jobs, stability, and hope for many low-income communities. At Thai Village we emphasize the development of quality, fair trade, ethical products. We incorporate traditional patterns and local materials. We seek to build up local people. Our artisans help to make our products unique, using time-honored techniques which have been passed on from generation to generation. These clutch purses use the cathedral quilt technique.

The beautiful workmanship of our artisans is something that they learn through skills trainings offered at Thai Village. Economic self-sufficiency is a foundational principle to Thai Village.  Individuals we work with who express special interest in particular crafts or trades are encouraged and trained to further develop their skills and passions.  This leads to much needed income generation. This means an increase in the artisan’s ability to support themselves and their family, which is wonderful!  Thai Village has supported nationals in programs such as stitching, sewing, dressmaking, tin carving, silver-smithing, quilting, soap making, paper making, and jewelry designing.

Your purchase of a quilted clutch purse supports fair trade and ethical trade among low-income populations in Thailand. Through these beautiful clutches we are able to give income, love, and hope to these wonderful people. Join us in supporting good things by purchasing today!
