At RISE Up Shop we work with indigenous artisans in Northern Thailand to make beautiful, ethically sourced products that fuze ancient wisdom with contemporary design. We predominantly work with women of the Karen, Kayan and Hmong groups. Their expertly woven textiles are so intricately made, they can be worn for decades. When women are financially empowered, they are able to keep their children in school, and, importantly, do not need to send their young daughters out to earn income in cities where they are most at risk of being trafficked in to slavery. When you financially empower a woman, you financially empower her whole family and help break the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
