Payment / How it Works:
- Our team is going to craft the best trip possible for you, taking into account your budget, time frame and interests. We ask that you commit to the trip by paying a $300 non-refundable deposit, so that you know we mean business.
- Our team will talk with you or the leader of your group to map out the logistics of the trip: activities, number of people, duration, accommodation, etc. Trip pricing will vary depending on these logistics. Thread Caravan will make all the necessary reservations for the duration of your trip.
- Once your itinerary is complete, you can choose to travel with just your group or be accompanied by someone from the Thread Caravan team.
- For an extra cost, we can also bring a photographer from our team to document your journey. (*This is a particularly good idea for designers interested in connecting with artisans for a collection. With a photographer you will be able to document the story behind your brand and your production process).
