Empowering Karen Communities

The Karen Hilltribes Trust (KHT) is a community-led organisation that works with Karen communities in Northern Thailand. Karen silver has a higher silver content of 99% compared to sterling silver which is 92.5%. This increases malleability allowing complicated patterns to be carved and gives the silver a unique feel. Karen bags are handwoven using a traditional backstrap loom.

All our Karen Hilltribe silver pieces are hand crafted using hand tools. The silver content is much higher than sterling silver, typically between 98-99%, which makes the silver more malleable so intricate designs can be crafted. RainbowLife is partnered with the  Karen Hilltribes Trust and all our jewellery is Fair trade.
