"As a local Thai woman, I'm very proud of the fact that I can have the career that I love, and to be able to provide for myself and my family."

I was born on 20 February, 1977, and I grew up in a small, warm family environment. I only have one older brother. My parents are kind people, so I always feel that we have a happy family.

"My mother has long specialized in batik and I often helped her. However, demand for batik work decreased and I worked with a friend making saa paper goods, for about two years. During this time, my brother resigned from his job to design cotton clothes. He has always loved arts and handicrafts, just like me. We grew up in an area renowned for traditional handicrafts, so we had the opportunity to learn many techniques and art forms, but we just never really had the time to do much about it.

"It turns out that my brother's clothes collections are doing pretty well. His designs are nice, and he received quite a few awards within a few years. He has exhibited his collections throughout Thailand as well as in the United States.

"In 2004 I started to work with my brother in the areas of design and production. We help each other when selecting quality materials and nice colors, and we transform them into trendy designs. By the time I developed the skills to do things on my own, my brother began to explore other areas, so he left me in charge. He is still around, ready to offer support and advice when I need it.

"Our cotton designs focus on using natural materials for a modern lifestyle. We use the method of coiling thread to decorate a lot of the work. We are glad that people like our ready-to-wear cotton collections. It also brings plenty of work to everyone involved, including people from different villages who help us transform cotton into different styles of clothing and decorative items.

"Myself, my brother and my team, we always work with natural materials, traditional techniques and wisdoms to create original designs and patterns suitable for modern ways of life, in Thailand and the rest of the world. I hope that more people will like our work and appreciate our efforts in working with environmentally-friendly materials, as well as constantly developing more new styles.

"I'm proud of the fact that there is a story behind every design we make, and that each item represents a collection of highly-skilled group of people.

"As a local Thai woman, I'm very proud of the fact that I can have the career that I love, and to be able to provide for myself and my family. This career has also generated work and income for many people who get involved in this project.

"Thanks for giving us the chance to present our designs to the world. I do hope that people around the world will like our designs."

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.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
