Lotus & Luna
June 18, 2019
We proudly sell Lotus & Luna in The Tooting Otter!
Each Lotus and Luna accessory is handcrafted by female artisans living in various small villages in Northern Thailand, providing them and their neighbors with consistent, fair employment. The Lotus and Luna design team collaborates directly with a lead artisan in each village to carefully create designs from high quality, locally sourced materials. The lead artisan then trains a larger group of women in her village how to create the designated product. These artisans range from all ages, backgrounds, and physical abilities, and are tasked based on their individual skills and interests. As each woman learns to make our products, she learns a new skill, and as the collections evolve through the seasons her skill set grows. This empowers our artisans individually while allowing their village economy to not only sustain, but grow. We are committed to providing our artisans with ethical work standards by paying them with fair wages, paid vacation time and sick leave. They are encouraged to work as often or as little as they choose, on site or from the comfort of their homes.
