Hilltribe silver

This silver jewellery is made by Karen people living in Northern Thailand. The Karen are one of several hilltribe groups who live in the Golden Triangle area. They are originally from Burma but many have made their way into the north and west of Thailand to escape the repressive regime over the border.

The Karen are skilfull craftspeople who make wonderful weavings, baskets and metal work. They have always made silver jewellery for themselves and sold traditional tribal designs to other hill tribe groups.
