I am hoping to find local producers in Thailand and Cambodia who could be called Fairtrade. I know this is difficult so I would rather work with organisations which have been founded to support people to make an income. I am interested in weaving/printing/embroidery etc and would plan to visit the org and producers to see it for myself. I know they exist but I am having a bit of trouble finding them (or if I do there is no address) - particulalry Cambodia. Not interested in silk producers.

Any info gratefully received.

Thanks very much. Hilary

We keep getting questions along the lines of yours. I think that most of the info that current members are aware of is posted in this Tribal textile shopping forum - do have a look at the individual posts.

If any info is shared with me I will post it on this forum.

As it happens I had something this week from forum member Kathleen Johnson, who spent about 3 years in Thailand when her husband, in the US foreign service, was posted there. Kathleen is a keen and experienced weaver and was also instrumental in the launch of the Thai Textile Society.
Dear Pamela,

Here is a photo show of the Southern Thai brocade study I participated with the Royal Goldsmith college in Bangkok. They are now producing hand woven native silk shawls natural dyed, some in the historic patterns of this project and some in my design drafts based on historic American textile resources. The money will go to a weaver's aid fund I am trying to start in Surin.

Maybe your list members would be interested in the link.

I don't know if forum members with broadband can actually get to the stage of seeing photos from the link. I have only been able to apparently download, then to hear music playing for some time before an error message to say that the has been a problem downloading and to try again. I have, several times, but the same result!

Pity as Kathleen's info sounds interesting. I have seen some of her weaving including some of the American patterns to which she refers and they are very fine.
