"Sawasdee ka, my name is Atchareeya Charoensri, and my nickname is Ning. I come from a family of farmers, but I didn't want to this for the rest of my life so I studied hard in order to have more options. I passed the entrance exam for the university. After graduating I began to work so I could share my income with my family.

"I have a sister and a brother who are married and have careers of their own. I'm single and live with my mom who unfortunately has cancer. I love her so much and hope she'll always be happy. I look after her and even though my brother and sister live away and have their own lives, we are very close and love and encourage each other.

"After university I began to work for a shipping company. They sent me to England and France, and even though it was a great learning experience I realized I wanted to work for myself - to be my own boss. I decided to combine the experience I had gained with my passion for art and interior decoration.

"When I started I encountered many obstacles; competition was rife and finances were low. But I never gave up. I knew if I tried my best I would succeed. I love designing new lines and developing new products. The actual production of our items is done by a group of men who are very experienced carvers. I also love meeting new people through my work.

"I feel proud to showcase the beauty of Thai culture and traditions. I am also a master of ceremonies for the Loy Kratong festival. I love to dress up in traditional northern Thai costumes and my motto is 'make of today the best I can, be myself, be favorable, think and do it, don't interrupt others and don't waste time.'"

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.
