Artisan Information

Thanadol

Hello! My name is Thanadol Chomphukham, or you can call me 'Kob.' I was born in Chiang Mai and never left my hometown. I studied industrial design and finished with a High Vocational Certificate.

I've been interested in jewelry design since I was young, and I intended to study industrial design with a focus on jewelry. After graduating, I tried to design some necklaces and bracelets from indigo-dyed cotton rope for myself, but didn't start making them to sell yet. Then my close friend from Japan saw what I wore, and he really liked it and wanted my products to sell at shops in Yokohama and Kyoto, Japan. That's when I started to work at my craft. I made the orders and shipped to Japan for a couple years, and then I started my own shop in the heart of Chiang Mai.

"The first products I designed were necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and earrings made from indigo-dyed cotton rope decorated with hammered silver pendants, Karen silver beads from Lamphun province, and red thread that contrasted with the indigo-dyed cotton rope.

"I compare my products to foods; I'm like the chef who has to create new menus and ingredients, then cook the dish that will showcase my own unique taste.

"I use various types of materials, such as kimonos (a traditional Japanese garment), cotton fabric from northeast Thailand, printed cotton from Chiang Mai or Africa, glass beads, brass beads, gemstones, etc. I think delicacy and design are my specialties.

"When I get orders from my customers, first I'll design a prototype and let customers give feedback and revise as they want. If they're in small quantities, I'll make them all by myself, but for larger orders I have my small team make the pieces. My team includes my younger sister and a neighbor in my village, and our work affords them a better living. I'm the one who is preparing all the materials and suggesting techniques and processes to them. At the final stage, I'll quality-check every piece again before delivering it to our customers.

"I'm proud of each piece, because I put all my intention and my heart into them. Thank you!"

Shop all NOVICA products

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
