Thai Tribal Crafts Fair Trade Co. Ltd.
In the decade of the 1960’s, several American Baptist women missionaries based in Chiang Mai who were working with Karen and Lahu tribal people became very concerned about the poverty of those they were serving in Northern Thailand. Because of their dedication to serve these people at every level, including their economic needs, the missionaries decided that perhaps they could help the tribal people by seeking ways to market their beautiful craft products which might provide them with much needed cash income.
In 1973, The Thai Tribal Crafts (TTC) was established with main objective to provide opportunities for improving the quality of life of the tribal people in the Northern Thailand. We become a certified member of World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) since 2002 and operate fully under fair trade principles.
