THE ARTISAN: MARQUET
Marquet employs over one hundred Akha crafts people who are indigenous to South-East Asia and live throughout Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Eastern China. Their mission is to empower these artisans and help them reach a larger audience. They offer both full-time and part-time opportunities at their central and highly productive workshop, which provides a great social environment where the sound of laughter is abundant, as artisans are happy to come work together in a relaxed and fun setting. The artisans also have the opportunity to work from home, which allows maximum flexibility for the artisans to work around their own schedules and other personal or family commitments.
