Minnesota to Mekong: RedGreen Rivers

Three Hmong-American community leaders are bringing economic opportunity to impoverished communities of the Mekong region of Southeast Asia through their new company RedGreen Rivers. The Minnesota-based venture works with artisan makers overseas to create handcrafted home goods, jewelry, and accessories with a modern spin on traditional Asian design, which it sells online. The artisans’ communities get a financial boost and the globally minded shopper gets gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces, such as these hemp-and-indigo embroidered accent pillows.
