We're thrilled to have Sapahn once again joining us at the Holiday Boutique. Sapahn, the Thai word for bridge, is the perfect way to describe this company. They set out to connect place, ideas, traditions, and people with the goal of creating sustainable economic opportunities.

Sapahn works face-to-face with artisans, in their communities, to ensure that their investments directly benefit the people who need it most. Through their work with artists in Burma and Thailand, they've learned that beautiful things can do something beautiful.

Make sure to visit this ethical fashion company in Booth #702 at the Holiday Boutique. But before you discover the gorgeous products they're bringing to the show, get to know them a little better in our interview below.

Describe your products.

"Beautiful things doing beautiful things. An artisan collection of high-artistic standard and beauty. We bridge the gap by connecting artisans' handcrafted collections with customers who want their beautiful things to do beautiful things. Collection includes premium leather handbags and wallets, 100% pure silk scarves, silver jewelry, and more."

Why would your product or service make the perfect holiday gift?

"Sapahn is a bridge. A bridge of people, craft, and stories. Stories evoke emotions. They invite people into a relationship beyond consumption. Giving a Sapahn gift is more than a beautiful, find-crafted piece of work. It is a vote of confidence for changing the way business is done - putting people and human rights first."

What is your favorite part about the Holiday Boutique?

"Talking with customers!"

Is there any additional information about your company you think folks should know?
