    - The schedule is flexible based on the group’s needs.
    - Please come with an open mind and flexible expectations as the activity is located in rural Thailand; it is a very different way of living and may be not as comfortable as you wish.
    - The textile workshop here uses only chemical-free, natural dyes extracted from the unused parts of local plantations. The wastes from the workshop are used as a fuel for fire. This means all parts of the process are zero-waste, or as sustainable as possible.
    - We recommend booking with a minimum of 1 week in advance
