Thai Tribal Crafts

Thailand

Thai Tribal Crafts (TTC) co-ordinates products from seven hill tribes across 50 remote villages of northern Thailand. Preservation of traditional crafts, languages and customs helps retain the cultural identity of disadvantaged tribal minorities, and the income from craft work is an essential supplement to subsistence farming.
