The partnership agreement has a historic meaning for production related to the Thai prison system, and will ensure education in clothing production, good wages and new opportunities for women in prison.
The partnership has been in progress since Veronica and our Regional Manager Kristina Kuhl visited three Thai prisons last year. Since then, we’ve only meet a lot of goodwill and support towards implementing new working conditions. The partnership agreement is signed by Carcel, The Ministry of Justice and the Kamlangjai Project (The Inspire Project) which is initiated by the HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha. The Princess is UN Goodwill Ambassador and co-writer on the ‘UN Bangkok Rules’ that improves the rights for women in prison.
The training period will start in Chiang Mai's women’s prison in May 2018 and our first silk styles will be launched later this year.
We are very honoured and excited about this partnership, and will keep you involved in the processes.
