The ThaiCraft Association

The Story of ThaiCraft

ThaiCraft began in 1975 as Hilltribe Sales at the International Church of Bangkok.  These volunteer-run events at International School Bangkok's former downtown campus operated until 1992. 

In August of that year the ThaiCraft Association became an independent development organisation, For the first year only, small start-up administration grants were received from Dutch (ICCO) and British (ODA/Oxfam) funding agencies.  By retaining a small share of sales revenue, ThaiCraft soon became and has remained a financially self-sufficient organisation.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and please continue to support fair trade producers.

Sabeena
