Travel Experience

The Family Tree offers beautiful, handmade, ethically traded goods including 100% natural dyed handwoven silks, handmade silver including stunning ethnic designs, high quality bamboo products, colourful batik and printed bags and purses.

Responsibility

The Family Tree prioritizes environmentally friendly products and producers. However, the Family Tree team also recognizes that moving village crafts towards strict environmental sustainability is a long-term process. To balance this, the team works very hard to plant and replenish natural resources, especially trees.

Business Case

Premruethai and Peter coordinated training and resources from the local government and Intrepid Travel to build the women’s skills in dying, cutting and sewing. Intrepid agreed to give a cotton 'community bag' to each guest (read more here), creating regular, supplementary income for poor and indebted families. We worked with local Buddhist Monks to plant trees and organise youth activities.
