Sop Moei Arts is a non-profit organization, which has been working with the Pwo Karen in Sop Moei district of Mae Hong Son Province, Thailand for the last 30 years. We collaborate with local villagers to create unique, limited edition and one off products, employing their expertise in weaving and basket making. This provides not only a sustainable source of income for the Pwo Karen but also helps keep alive their traditional craft skills, which are rapidly disappearing.
Many of our products are now available here (many more will be coming later). At the moment we can only ship to Europe, USA and South East Asia but we're adding new regions daily and should have the rest of the world covered by the end of June.
We've also moved all our blogspot posts to the News page if you want to catch up with what's happening with our projects and in our Chiang Mai and Bangkok branches.
