A traditional pencil case, designed to hold several pens, pencils, etc. The woven fabric is handcrafted so each pencil case has a slightly different pattern. The zipper is along the full length of the case. The pencil case is 19 cm long and the end panel has a diameter of 6 cm. Fully lined with black fabric.

This pencil case was made by a member of the Karen Tribe of Thailand, working with the cooperative Thai Tribal Crafts. The vision of Thai Tribal Crafts is to trade as a Fair Trading Organization by providing development opportunities for the tribal peoples of Northern Thailand so that they can have a better life.

Seven Hill tribes of Northern Thailand are involved in the project: the Akha, Hmong, Karen, Lahu, Lawa, Lisu and Mien groups, as well as many women working in Chiang Mai. They operate under the principle of fair trade: the main goal is to pay the producers the highest price as possible and sell the products at a price that is just adequate to meet expenses. Any financial gain realized beyond the basic needs goes back to the tribal people in the form of benefits.
