"Taileu" Elephant Tassels HELP FEED THE ELEPHANTS!

Regular price $10.00
Unit price  per 

The elephants living in sanctuaries in Laos are in trouble.  The pandemic has stopped the flow of international tourists who paid for the animals food and upkeep, and now these sanctuaries are broke. 

$2 from every elephant tassel we sell will go to support the Elephant Conservation Center sanctuary in Sayaboury, Laos.

These cute elephant tassels are handmade by Taileu women in northern Laos, making this a DOUBLE-DO-GOOD PURCHASE.  Help the makers AND help the elephants! No two alike.  Made with handwoven fabrics and hand embroidery. 

Elephants are the symbol of good luck and wealth in Lao culture.  Though Laos used to be the Land of a Million Elephants, the numbers alive today are but a fraction of that (less than 1000). Sad but true that most have been poached or sold off to zoos in China and elsewhere.  Most of the ones that remain are in sanctuaries, while some are still engaged in timber harvesting. 

Mixed colors.  We can't take an order for a specific color, but we will choose the best in stock for each shipment.

Great Maine Bag

Finally stopped in after driving by for a year. Unique natural fiber artisan creations. Felt good to support local artist who are supporting hand weavers. Bought a great tote with the Maine map made of assorted hand woven fabics stitched on front.

Great store

My wife and I went into the store on a whim and couldn’t have been happier. Really nice stuff and really nice people. We will go back.
