Description

Upcycling plays a big part in our creative process. For these coasters, we collaborated with Akha artisans through our Village Weavers Project. Inspired by the silver discs and coins used to decorate their traditional clothes and headdresses, the Akha upcycle aluminum cans, fashioning them into matte, shimmery discs.

Since October 2019, in collaboration with the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), we’ve been working with artisans from 6 different villages and 3 provinces. We help them develop ranges of handicrafts that combine craftsmanship and tradition with realistic creativity and market knowledge. Our team of weavers, dyers, designers and tailors transfer their skills to aid artisans to make a better living from handicrafts.
