Meet The Founder

Narissara Ruttanawarasin, Co-Founder of CHANGNOI

"Sawadee Ka"

My name is Narissara. I was born in Lampang Province northern Thailand, In 1990 in a small village named Ban Hong not far from the city. When I was young, I loved to draw pictures from what I saw in my backyard. There are trees, a river, flowers, and fields. My family, They are a farmer and also have part-time job sewing hats. The income is very low.

When I was 24 years old. After I have married, I am determined to move with my husband to Chiang Mai while my daughter born will in soon. I look for a business that I can use my artistic skills to help my husband to support my family. I decided to study how to produce handbags, wallets, clothing and more from the master of leather in Chiang Mai. All of my products there are from my idea, my imagination, my local style and merge to good quality products for everyday use.

Finally, I am thankful so much for every customer that helps save/support what I love and my village. I hope you are happy to support me as an artisan.
