Turquoise or Red Ball Earrings, Thailand
Created by the Hmong Tribe of northern Thailand. This Asian ethnic group originates from the mountain regions of China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. Due to political unrest in the 18th century, these people moved south to find more workable land. Their culture is rich in family, art, and distinctive in their fabric patterns and vibrant costumes.
Ethnic Lanna, a fair trade company, helps the women in this hill tribe to produce eco-friendly handbags, jewelry, and so much more. All levels of production are environmentally friendly with safe working conditions and a good salary. Ethnic Lanna works with over 100 women and are looking to expand into Laos.
