The Akha are an indigenous hill tribe who live in South-East Asia, throughout the mountainous regions of Thailand, Burma, Laos, Vietnam and Eastern China. The Marquet artisan collective, who make our bracelets, employs over one hundred crafts people and offers both full-time and part-time opportunities, as well as the opportunity to work from home. This provides the artisans flexibility to work around their own schedules and to take into account their personal and family commitments. A central and highly productive workshop also provides a great social environment where the sound of laughter is abundant as artisans are happy to come work together in a relaxed and fun setting. Marquet provides insight on product design and global trends as well as educates them on long-term hiring and growth strategies.
