The Story of Mi Tham

We wanted to personally introduce and share the story of Mi Tham. She hand makes all of our yoga mat bags locally for the Tembo Group in Baltimore, MD. Mi began her career as a seamstress in Burma, also known as Myanmar which is under de facto military rule, where the military tried to conscript her. When the army began searching for her husband, she fled with her younger daughter and escaped into Thailand after which the Burmese army burned her home. Unfortunately Mi Tham was forced to leave her older daughter behind with her mother.  After six years in Malaysia and a debilitating accident to her husband, she came to the United States with her younger daughter and husband. She thanks the USA for giving her the right to do what she wants to do, and the right to own personal property. Mi was Tembo Group’s first employee they hired.  We are so honored and privileged to have Mi on the Yoloha team. She truly is an inspiration.
