Our Travel Kits are back - and even better!

As many of you know, we have been out of Erbaviva Travel Kits for some time. I have good news - they're back and even better! They look the same as before, but we are now having the Pwo Karen hill tribe make the outer canvas bags for us. This is the same tribe who we've been working with for years and who makes our canvas pouches and weaves our baskets. This program helps them to fund their children's clinic and support their sustainable farming efforts.

More on the tribe

Fun fact: Once the shipment is ready, it has to be loaded onto Elephant back to go down the mountain and then needs to be floated down the river on a raft to the nearest port!
