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.
Here’s a sneak preview of a new collection we’re working on with artist Chris Chun. The cushion collection features Pwo Karen tattoos silk-screened on linen with a silk backing – perfect for brightening up any sofa. Check back soon to see more additions to the range!
