Celebrate Culture Days! Travel virtually with TAMMACHAT to meet village artisans in rural Thailand and Laos. Learn how they sustainably create textiles, using traditions passed from mother to daughter for generations. Slideshow/talk @ 2pm each day.
Find meaningful gifts for the holidays -- or any time! Featuring fairly traded, naturally dyed: organic silk scarves, cotton scarves, bags and more.
Support sustainable traditions and rural women artisans in Thailand and Laos with your purchases. "A little luxury. A lot of good."
Browse TAMMACHAT's photo books. See how silk is skillfully made by women artisans at their homes. Learn how natural dyes are created with local materials.
Give a book to a child in Laos. For every piece you buy, TAMMACHAT gives a child in Laos their very first book, in partnership with Big Brother Mouse, a Lao-owned social enterprise.
Also enjoy the 16th Annual Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair and Mahone Bay Centre's BIG Book Sale.
