Published on

The Family Tree, located in Hua Hin, Thailand, proudly offers authentic, Thai arts and crafts, handmade by community groups and independent artists. We have traveled the country, searching for creative treasures, which include award-winning, natural dyed and hand-woven Thai silks, natural cosmetics, vibrant paintings of Thai life and inspiring recycled sculptures, jewelry, toys and accessories. We are committed to Fair Trade, sourcing our products from over 30 social and environmental initiatives, including crafts cooperatives, women’s groups, ethnic minorities and artisans with special needs. This presentation was made in Bohol, Philippines on the 28th February 2013, on invitation of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts of the Philippines. For more information, see
