Short Introduction

collective, collaboration

Borderline Collective Handicraft shop offers a wide range of products handmade by several Women groups living along the border between Thailand and Burma. These high quality products range from practical items like phone cases, tote bags and wallets to decorative table runners and wall hangings. There are children’s toys, note book covers for the electronic and paper notebooks, shawls, shirts, skirts and jewelry.

All designs have been made in house by the groups. Most items have been made with thread that has been dyed using natural, plant based dyes and some also have homespun, organic cotton.

Borderline functions as an extension of the groups and pays the groups the price that is set by them. Only then an additional 20% charge is added for the running cost.

Besides items for sale in our shop, it is also possible to order on line. Most of the time only a small amount of items is made and each new batch might slightly change from the previous one, therefore we can not guarantee the exact item shown on our website.

If you are interested in something you see on our site, let us know so we can personally help you find what you want.

We do accept PayPal or a money transfer in our Thai bank account.
