Problem

We know from personal experience that because there are no local jobs, a lot of people migrate to Thailand and around the region to look for work. Our overarching concept of providing enough work so people don’t have to leave their villages — and contribute to already overcrowded cities or go to Thailand for work — is expressed through our products.

Solution

We can keep people working in their own local villages and make money for everybody. Our vision is to produce eco-friendly products that put local villagers to work by providing them trainings.
