Jean's patchwork bag

Jean is a single mother of two children living near Chiang Mai in Thailand. Her story is one that reflects her diligence, integrity and committment to her children even when her circumstances have been difficult due to her ethnic minority background.  She has designed this bag herself and carefully sources and arranges the pieces of Hilltribe reclaimed fabric to create a unique product.  With her sewing business, Jean is looking forward to being able to keep her children in school and building a home on the land that she has been able to purchase.  With the sales of these bags, Jean has also been able to expand her business to teach and employ more women.
