The craft designs of the Karen people, a tribal minority living in the hills in the North of Thailand around Chiang Mai, have a sophisticated simplicity. They are known for their silverwork, woven cotton and basketry. The matt finish and ethnic motifs of their traditional silver ornaments reflect the Karen people's affinity with nature, as featured in the beautiful jewellery skilfully adapted for contemporary living by this skilled group of craftspeople. Their silver is of the highest grade and is intricately tooled and assembled by hand, deserving the loving care of any delicate artwork.
