Our member work from home, they can stay with their family and villagers while working, farming their own rice and vegetable. The flexibility of work helps them went through many difficult moments.

Our member work from home, they can stay with their family and villagers while working, farming their own rice and vegetable. The flexibility of work helps them went through many difficult moments.

Year 1992, a family in northern Thailand began to sew different products for the local market. Since 2009, they teamed up with Omatti and began to produce for the European market. Emerging traditional Craft skill and our exclusive design, the demand grew rapidly. We organized women in the village working together with the philosophy of helping the local community. With the additional income, the economic situations of those small farmers families have been improved. 

“We know everyone has a different dream”

Our members are mainly small farmer housewives, who have to stay home taking care their family and were not possible work far away from home.

Our project gives the flexibility to Omatti women choosing the amount of work and the place to work (In our workshop or their home) depending on their needs. Project leader divide the process and material to different women according to their ability, family situation and preference.

Part of the profit are re-invested in buying new equipment, such as: sewing machine, cloth cutting machine, overlock machine and improving the working condition and to be more precise and efficient.

Meanwhile, we offer opportunity to our women to attend sewing school to learn new techniques. In a second step, they pass their new knowledge to the others women. It helps them to build up confidence and encourage them to give their input to the production and new product development.

All Omatti women are insured by the state social insurance against sickness and accident, which medical care is guaranteed. Depends on case, members can get advance wages from us for emergency family difficulties.

Project - text homegrowth

In year 2015, We decided to create a documentary film to record our story. We want to share our concept, idea and to show the alternative of manufacturing.

 

While we were searching for film studio, we met Nat Sakhonbut (Thailand) – who is committed to promote local craftsmanship with his documentary. He was impressed the direction of Omatti project, and how this system could work in his own country. He decided to sponsor part of the expense of this documentary. He wishes more people can benefit from this project, not only in Thailand, but also around the world. He is planning to bring this documentary film on screen in various film festival in the future.

We have started filming from November 2015 and it will go on until the end of 2016. In 2017, it will be ready to publish.
