What is Karen Hill Tribe Silver?
Karen Hill Tribe Silver is a high purity silver (97%-99%) that will not tarnish as readily as sterling silver (92.5%). These fair trade beads are handcrafted by Karen Hill Tribe artisans in Thailand.
The Karen Hill Tribe is the largest of the 6 principal hill tribes of Thailand. Historically the Karen tribe relied primarily on opium cultivation as their main source of income. In the early 1960's, the King & Queen of Thailand decided to help the Karen people develop an alternative to growing opium as their main source of income by teaching them a new skill. Silversmiths were brought in to teach Karen farmers the art of jewelry and bead making using fine silver. These techniques are now passed down to each generation, enabling them to use their craft to sustain the tribe as a whole.
