May we present a few of the team members to you?
Thai Tribal Crafts Fair Trade Initiative
Positive products made by and for positive people. This is Thai Tribal Crafts, a fairtrade initiative from Chiang Rai. Thanks to the education offered by Hammock Art, also the weaving of hammocks is part of this initiative, especially at peak times.
Hammock Artist - Foi
For 2 years now, I have been part of the team and I am still learning. In the beginning the weaving was hard work for me but now it's going relatively smooth. We use the extra-income for investing in our grandson's education.
I love creating hammocks. I am a farmer's daughter and the process of weaving hammocks brings some change into my daily life. What I like in this work? I can weave at home and organize my working hours myself. The extra income is invested in a higher education of my two kids.
Hammock Artist - Khong Kham
Thailand is known as the land of the smile and I do have quite some reason to smile! With 8 years of experience, I am weaving the V-hammock faster than the new members in the team. As we are paid per hammock I can create a very good income. The work is fun and I love to be independent.
Hammock Artist - Nui
I am originally from the ethnic minority Kahmu. Our village is very remote so there are not many options for jobs and we rarely find work. Me and my 5 colleagues are very happy to have an employment in which we can work at home. A regular income makes a big difference for our community life here in the village.
