During 3 Saturdays, presentations of themes chosen in connection with artisanal productions of rural provinces of Thailand, represented by Dhammarts

at Centre Yakushidô
14:00 – 18:00

07.12.  Presentation of the production of artisanal fabrics handmade of natural indigo & natural dyes with ancient traditional techniques

21.12.  The charm of indigo in meditation

28.12.  Reuse and revive the fabrics


Dhammarts has been supporting artisans in several rural provinces of Thailand to continue using their own traditional dyeing and hand-weaving techniques to improve their production and help them grow in the market. Opening up a new opportunity for highly qualified but marginalized dyers and weavers, and supporting local artisans from four textile cooperatives (villages), Dhammarts buys their handspun and handwoven fabrics for use as our “green raw materials” for our production of hand-crafted yoga and meditation accessories as well as ethically made and earth-friendly clothing.

Our work ethic is based on 4 principles:
• Promoting environmentally friendly raw material & production
• Pursuing sustainable income and development for rural communities
• Providing top quality accessories for meditation, yoga, massage and apparels
• A promise to donate some profits to social, environmental or economic developmental projects

Come and find unique, hand-crafted gifts that respect the nature and craftsmanship.
Private sales of clothing and accessories heartmade with plant-based dyes, natural indigos and authentic Tibetan singing bowls.

Collaboration with Kru Aek & his local artisans in Nan Province, Thailand

Dhammarts started the new year 2019 with a proactive approach as we wish to be of some help to more textile communities who set people and the environment as the central role of their working ethics than making profit at any cost.

This time we went to explore a faraway northern province of Thailand, where we found hidden treasure of a learning centre on natural dyes, established since 1993 by Kru Aek – a former rural development practitioner.

Having strong passion and great determination in the preservation of naturally dyed handwoven cotton textile, Kru Aek currently works with approx. 50 local artisans of four different villages in Nan Province. He encourages them to go more earth-friendly by cultivating organic cotton farming and developing sustainable natural dyeing using locally found/grown plants. Their chemical-free natural dye is clearly distinguishable by its color as they love to mix several plant-/mineral-based dyed colors together and by doing so they create new beautiful unique color tones.

Dhammarts is so happy to collaborate with Kru Aek and his local artisans by purchasing their handspun & handwoven fabrics for using as “green base materials” for small batch production of our handcrafted meditation supplies, naturally dyed apparels & accessories. We’re really looking forward to integrating various naturally dyed tones and the unique hand-weaving technique locally called “Jok” with traditional motifs of Thai-Lue ethnic group into our product lines.

In respect of time-consuming handmade crafts, we already placed our orders with enough time for hand-production. Dhammarts also provides financial assistance, for example by making some advance payments on orders to help local artisans finance the production processes.

This year, we will also support those four local textile communities financially in their organic cotton farming. By reinvesting in such a worthy cause, we provide them with supplementary works that help generate additional income and earn a decent livelihood.

Stay tuned and help us contribute to the preservation of natural dyeing and hand-weaving techniques as well as the sustainable socio-economic development of rural people!





Plenty of Dhammarts’ new items to discover at the Wellness Fair in Prévessin-Moëns this weekend (24.-25.11.2018):

  • zafus / zabutons in different new patterns
  • naturally dyed casual wear made of handspun, handwoven fabrics and hand-embroidered decor
  • self-massage tools of more ergonomic shape than in the past

Come & find a nice gift that will do you good and that will help us maintain these ancient, well-worth-preserving artisanal skills.

We’re looking forward to meeting you there and sharing our sustainable and fair journey with you.

Experiences during a small retreat in Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India (16.-26.01.2018)

Apart from learning from teachers or books and from applying what we have learned to the new experiences and events we encounter in our daily lives, I personally believe that we can enhance our own practice by going on a retreat, either on one’s own or in a group.

The fact that Bodh Gaya, India, is the place where the Buddha attained enlightenment and where many great spiritual practitioners stay and perform meditation rituals makes the atmosphere of the place “something special”. That’s the main reason why I chose to come here (again).

Situated in one of the poorest areas of India, the utter yet kind of charming chaos and messiness of the village helps “unlock” or “loosen up” the controlling and too square tendency in me. This unique place helps me learn fast to adapt myself to new environments and take things as they are.

By means of my project “Dhammarts” I have been promoting meditation and its benefits in everyday life. Many scientific and medical researches attest that continued practice of noticing the changing nature of the body and mind through meditation can, for instance, result in an increasing awareness and a reduction in stress. This process – coming to know the truth and developing oneself – can be freely practiced by everyone, at anytime, in any place, regardless of race, community or religion.

During this trip, I also had the rare opportunity to meet one of the greatest non-sectarian spiritual leaders and a tireless worker for peace of our time – the Dalai Lama. I was so touched to experience him as a humble person and to listen to his teachings: >> We can make a significant contribution to the world humanity by cultivating our own inner peace. << (addressed at Watpa Bodhgaya on 25.01.2018). “Hygiene of emotions” is the universal and timeless aspect to be practiced for our own inner peace and mental health, which certainly again affects our physical health.

Irrespective of race, social status, religion etc., he treats everybody equally with humbleness, kindness, love and compassion – something he embodies naturally. To witness that was very inspiring for me, especially considering, as you know, the kind of background he comes from and what kind of difficulties he had to face.

Many thanks to everyone and everything that allowed me to have these experiences during this retreat, which will remain with me – always,

Bow / Dhammarts

Special thanks for many nice photos from Nong Bua & those precious of the Dalai Lama from Nong Joy!
