Pakaon Sojintarit

"The allure of silver jewelry took me back to run my family's project. It is blended between traditional and modern design, and I'm happy with it."

Hello! My name is Pakaon Sojintarit but you can call me Little. I was born in 1991. I grew up in a warm, jewelry-loving... family with three brothers and sisters.

“Thirty years ago, my parents sold souvenirs such as bags, scarves, silk articles, etc. But the disadvantage was these products were not designed by them, so they didn't look great. But if we sold jewelry, we could design items. My mother accidentally met hill tribe people, and got to know about their culture. She fell in love with their arts and crafts, including their silver jewelry. Hill tribe arts and crafts look charming, because they imitate nature. Each piece has its story and significance, which appear through various patterns. S, my parents got to know more and more silversmiths from hill tribe villages, and eventually worked with many of them.

“When I was young, I often followed my mom to the hill tribe villages. I saw their equipment and their designs, and I learned how they lived and worked. They are always kind and sincere. I was amazed by their abilities — with just a few tools, they could create impressive pieces. It's silverwork that is made from raw silver. Therefore, the finished product has a purity of more than 95 percent silver.

After finishing a course in the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, I took an internship in the USA for two years. I came back to work in the hotel industry in Bangkok, then went to study the Chinese language in China for four months. When I was working in the hotel industry, I gained experience in human resources. But even though I got a high salary, I felt it wasn't a challenging job.

“We cannot be happy if we waste all day with something we don't like.

The allure of silver jewelry took me back to run my family's project. It is blended between traditional and modern design, and I'm happy with it. Now we have about 50 people who collaborate with us and 80 percent of them are women. I'm happy to give them certainty and permanent income and see them have a fulfilling life. My brother and I oversee accounting, sales, workers and inventory.

I've traveled a bit in the world and sometimes I take influence from what I've seen, and take a picture. I come back and share the idea with the silver artisans and ask them to create it as jewelry. When I travel, I notice many jewelry designs, and now I've become a good observer everywhere I go.

I admire my family's work, because I know the wages I pay to hill tribe people makes their lives better, and they are satisfied with their work. I have now worked with more than 300 silversmiths from many hill tribe villages. If we can sell a lot of jewelry, it means we can perpetuate the culture of Karen hill tribe silverwork as well.

My future dream is to make hill tribe silver more significant and unique in Chiang Mai, and to create some attractive designs that will make tourists want to visit. For example, we once bought something from elsewhere and, when we saw it later, we could recall what it was and where it came from. I want Chiang Mai to have some designs like that.

I'm interested in your way of marketing online that takes our work to the international level. With the right goals, I believe this is one way we can give back to society. Thank you.

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.
