I've posted a blog entry on May 12 on the main blog, entitled: TAMMACHAT Natural Textiles: working with rural women weavers in Thailand and Laos. I'd be interested in responses to some of the issues I raise in this entry. I have not worked with groups outside Thailand and Laos, but suspect that some of the issues of working with small scale producer groups in these 2 countries are somewhat different than the experiences others have had working in India. I'd be interested to hear more from others. And although the challenges are there, I think there is a market for the kinds of products that we source from these rural women's weaving groups that can make a difference in their lives.
