Hill Tribe Silver is made by the Karen Tribe of Northern Thailand. These are all handcrafted pieces that are 95-99% pure silver. Because of the higher silver content (compared to sterling silver that is 92.5% pure), these pieces are softer and easier to shape.Oxidation, hammer marks and slight variations in design make the Karen Tribe silver pieces distinctive and unique.
