This Fair Trade coin purse shows a subtle, timeless design, made by the Lahu Tribe in Thailand. It is a bit larger than some coin purses, so can have many different uses - including holding flash drives, first aid, coins, make-up, passport as a few ideas. It includes a zipper closure and is fully lined. Both sides have the same design.

 This small purse was made by a member of the Lahu Hill 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.
