My Work with the Hill Tribe People of Thailand

In early 2017 we began working alongside the Rain Tree Foundation with Ban La Up and Nai Soi villages in Thailand to create original, authentic pieces that foster empowerment, dialogue, and awareness.

We believe the collaboration will generate important additional mutual benefits beyond the commercial and aesthetic value of the jewelry. The Lawa and Karenni people that live in these villages face poverty, racial discrimination, disease, and extreme lack of opportunity for young people. This collaboration with Houser will create economic opportunity, growth, and cultural awareness.
