Fashion Accessories by Warm Heart
Warm Heart is a community-based development organization serving mountainous, rural northern Thailand. We are located about 75 kms north of Chiang Mai. Launched in 2008, one of our earliest and ongoing programs is our Fashion Accessories Microenterprise.
One of Warm Heart’s most prized collections is our natural dye eri silk scarves. Beautiful colors to choose from, with prices starting at $65.00
Eri silk is only cultivated in northern Thailand and northern India. Unlike most filament silks, eri is spun like cotton, resulting in a soft, fluffy wool-like yarn.
Eri yarn produces interesting nubbly textures when woven. With proper care, this scarf will age well and give you many seasons of wearing pleasure.

Our website is more than just another online webstore. We thought that you would enjoy reading about the behind-the-scenes story of how we work and the challenges of operating a sustainable social cause microenterprise now in its 9th year.
Throughout our site you will find stories of the talented local women that we work with in our women's groups, our in-house team, and the volunteers who have contributed to the growth of Microenterprise.
After learning about the care and dedication behind our wonderful creations, we hope that not only will you buy a piece or two to support us, but that you will also pass on the website link to anyone in your network who you think might be interested in learning more about Warm Heart.
The beautiful high-quality products our women make are the joint creations between traditional designs and input from our volunteers and wholesale partners from all over the world. Each purchase you make will improve the lives of whole families.
To start our story, here is an interview with Evelind Schecter, one of Warm Heart's co-founders, about how Microenterprise began and has evolved.
We always try to do something special with our weaves, ranging from the airy waffle weave of our bestseller Gossamer to more complex herringbone, diamond and other patterned weaves.
We also do some natural dyed cotton scarves in soft pastels. Prices starting at $25.00
At Warm Heart we also have a Children's Homes program, providing food, clothing, shelter, education, and love for over 45 disadvantaged children.
Our Project Access program assists impoverished Seniors and Disabled in the poverty-stricken area of Phrao, Thailand.
We also focus on Climate Change, sharing current information to help find solutions with our Environmental Program.
Our programs are run by Volunteers and funded through sponsorships and donations.
