About Us and how it all Began…

Luna Tree was established in 2007 by Clare McCormack. Clare’s career prior to Luna Tree was in retail management and also as a buyer for a multiple store Fair Trade gift and homewares business.  Initial contact with the village and the silversmiths were made over several years during buying trips in South East Asia . The beautiful jewellery and the silversmiths creativity was something that stayed with Clare long after her buying trips had ended!

Clare works closely on the designs with the silversmiths on her visits to Thailand. Many designs are pure Clare.  Some designs are a mix of Clare’s ideas and the silversmiths creativity.  While some are pure Karen Hill Tribe designs. Not quashing their creativity is something which is very close to the central focus of the business, along with the Fair Trade ethics on which Luna Tree is run.

Elephant Stampede…

During trips to visit the silversmiths and to work on new designs Clare started to visit Elephant Nature Park. ENP is a sanctuary in Northern Thailand for Asian elephants. A place where rescued elephants gain their freedom from servitude and can live out the rest of their lives naturally. ENP left a huge impression with Clare after her first visit their in 2009.  In 2010 Clare met Lertsark, the elephant artist on her trip to Thailand that year and added a small range of reproduction paintings to the Luna Tree repertoire. Profits from this painting range are donated to the Save Elephant Foundation. This is the charity which funds ENP and both were founded by Sangdeaun Lek Chailert.

ENP also work on Fair Trade principles and only serve vegan food to their volunteer guests. A place where people, animals and the land are all looked after. A true utopian place which is incredibly special.
