Morwahkee is a small Karen (Burmese refugee) village in Northern Thailand where weaving scarves on a back-strap loom is a time-honored tradition that has been passed down through generations.

By purchasing scarves directly from the artisans in Morwahkee we seek to preserve this century-old craft while also providing Karen women with an independent & fair wage. Each purchase not only supports the artisans & their families, but also contributes to the maintenance of a small community-run school in the local village that is striving to preserve their ancient Karen language, culture & traditions through education.
This is a collaborative project between myself & Natalie from Global Pearls after visiting Morwahkee over the past 2 years & discovering a joint passion to support this beautiful community through direct action.
