Vinita's story

Vinita is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in batik accessories. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of cotton and silk.

Vinita has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is her story:

Thailand's Vinita says, 'I studied fine art and discovered my true identity — I express myself through tangible art, especially by creating unique colors with batik apparel. After marriage, we decided to follow our dreams for our children to grow in a place of peace and beauty with a simple lifestyle. I focus on textile arts and mix the dyes myself. My family is a family of artists; my husband and my children are art graduates. Our happiness is expressed in our artwork.'

"Thank you. I am always grateful for your kind support."
