Tribal Fiber, a fellow member of the Fair Trade Federation, was founded in 1996 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The founders decided to create a company that practices social responsibility and uses sustainable materials. They combined their experience in community development and international business to develop a product line made in village cooperatives from hand-woven hemp.

Tribal Fiber provides training, equipment and seed money for cooperatives striving to create financial independence. Additionally, Tribal Fiber has established a matching community development fund for each cooperative. These funds are used for medical emergencies, education and repairs within the village.
