Talis carries two lines of products. Talis Jewellery and Cambodhi Silks. Cambodhi Silks offers a line of beautiful, vibrant silk accessories, hand crafted in a fairly-traded cooperative in Cambodia. Our unique range of silk products include scarves, purses, wallets and knapsacks. We also carry a fun variety of accessories made from colourful recycled bags. Made from recycled rice bags, cement bags and fish fertilizer bags, they are versatile and washable.
Talis sterling silver jewellery is hand-crafted by the Karen hill tribe people of Northern Thailand, in self-managed communities. In line with fair trade principles, our artisans are paid a living wage, which enables them to afford healthcare and education for their children. By building inroads to the western market, this helps the Karen artisans support themselves, their families and communities with independence and dignity.
