eBannok Handicrafts

The eBannok Handicrafts Project is run to empower local hilltribe women, giving them a safe environment to work, independent wealth, and maintaining the community. eBannok sells both domestically and internationally, using a variety of offline and online outlets to promote its wares. The goods range from clothing and accessories, to the best-selling clay whistles - handmade and hand-painted. eBannok runs a machine sewing workshop and makes clay products onsite, employing local hilltribe women.
