Sawang Boran is a group of artisan, Isan women who, with the help of anthropologist Dr. Trottier, have been reconnected with the roots of their deep and spiritual knowledge of the beauty of nature. They create authentic, traditionally processed (yet newly labeled "organic"), one of a kind fair trade silks (including beautiful clothing) in Isan Northeast Thailand for sale throughout the world.
Sawang Boran fair trade silk products are beautiful reminders that we humans are here not only to take and use Earth's resources until they are gone, but we are here to share in the spirituality of this beautiful planet, her people and her wealth.
"This kind of truly authentic silk is not only good for people and nature on the production side, for it is also beneficial to human health and well-being (in addition to being beautiful) as well as a low maintenance fibre that requires infrequent washing (so saves water and detergents)." - Dr. Roseanne Trottier
