WHO YOU ARE SUPPORTING
Artisan Group: Yunnan Gushu
Yunnan is noted for a very high level of ethnic diversity. Some 38% of the province's population are members of minorities. Many people still prefer to live in villages where employment and educatioinal opportunities are limited. We buy directly from Yunnan Gushu, a Yunnan village producer group that is jointly owned by crafters. They often make use of local materials, and their designs have very strong cultural elements. Minority groups celebrate strong personalities through vibrant colours and outstanding accessories. We challenge you to try some on!
