Our Gallery Collections
Above The Fray:
Traditional Hill tribe Art
We represent the finest traditional artists who live in hill tribe Laos and Vietnam.
Our hand-woven silks, cotton and hemp textiles, basketry, jewelry and other arts are as meaningful in these artists' lives today as they have been for generations. Who the artists are, what they value, and generations of tradition are woven into each creation.
In an era of rapid modernization and expanding opportunities, we recognize that these long-inherited art-forms, and the indigenous cultures they support, will better sustain their vitality and vibrancy if new interest and markets are generated.
All items at Above the Fray have been personally selected directly from the artist or in village markets in hill tribe Laos and Vietnam. A photo of the artist with each one-of-a-kind piece is often available with the purchase of that piece.
