After three years in Thailand, we at GGL found that hill-tribe women tailors often move back to their native villages after getting married. With several years of valuable training and experience acquired in or close to Chiang Mai, these tailors leave much needed stable incomes behind when they move back to their traditional way of life in remote villages (Karen and Hmong hill tribes).
Our solution was to start delivering the supplies, materials, equipment, and designs to villages one to four hours outside of the city. The tailoring co-ops we work with are in outlying areas of Chom Thong and Doi Inthanon national park, northern Thailand.
By providing consistent orders along with fair wages for their skills and experience, Global Groove Life contributes to the preservation of indigenous traditions and values while enabling tailors to work in the comfort of their own homes.
