Sarote's story

Sarote is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in wood and silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver to replenish his stock.

Sarote has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story:

"I enjoy using natural materials to create jewelry. I also love to design, and find ways to make my designs work," says Sarote. "I'm from Bangkok, and when I moved to Chiang Mai I decided to start my own workshop at home and work on my designs. I studied how to bake the wood dry to prevent the expansion or contraction, and after that, I focused on attaching it to the silver. I enjoyed finding a way to solve this obstacle by myself!"

"Thank you for the assistance, especially providing funds for artisans like us. It strengthens me to be able to purchase material for production even in a serious situation. We promise to create the new products simultaneously and continuously."
