Handwoven fabrics

The fabrics listed as handwoven are generally produced by women working in their own homes. This also allows them to take care of children and other family members, which is very important in a country with basically no social welfare system. These women work for themselves although often under the auspices of OTOP which is a government program to support locally made products.

This program provides an opportunity to sell and market products collectively even though they are often made by individuals in their own homes. As well as the immediate benefits for communities through the sales of local products, the OTOP initiative has halted, and in many cases reversed, the decline in many traditional crafts and skills. So definitely a worthwhile initiative which I am in no way affiliated with except that it allows me to buy truly beautiful fabrics knowing that they were created locally and without exploitation.
