In summer 2007, Alleson Kase and I co-founded TAMMACHAT Natural Textiles to bring together our interests and expertise in Southeast Asian travel, weaving, fair trade, photography and supporting women weavers in rural Thailand and Laos. We originally created our two Blurb books as "thank you" gifts for two women's weaving co-ops we visited and photographed in 2006 in Northeast Thailand. Since that time, we've had many requests for these books at textile events we hold to sell the gorgeous weavings produced by these two co-ops and others. Now, we're making these books available to you through the Blurb bookstore. Visit our Online Shop to find a selection of TAMMACHAT's textiles: http://www.tammachat.com.
