Traditions through Design
Preserving the heritage
For us, design represents an occasion to find a creative solution in any given situation. But above all, we believe in the beauty of handmade items and the deeper meaning behind things that are born from ancestral knowledge and in harmony with local customs. Products made in such way do so much more that just bring pleasure to the customer; they create a link between the user and the artisan, they help keep the traditional approach to crafts alive and in continuos evolution, they create an opportunity for the whole community and their welfare and offer a positive inspiration for a better future for everyone.
About Karen Silver
Our silver products are hand crafted in 95-98% Silver by Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans. The Karen are a group of ethnic peoples who reside primarily in southern and southeastern Burma and in northern and north-eastern Thailand. Thai and Burmese hill tribes can be traced back to the 12th century when they are said to have originated from Tibet. With a higher silver content than sterling silver, Karen silver has a weight, bright satin color and feel, all of its own. Every piece is handmade and individual.

After the melted silver was cast into ingot shape it is then suitable for further processing.
