Chaloemphon's story

Chaloemphon is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in handcrafted leather bracelets, bags and accessories. He would like to invest in capital improvements to his workshop as well as basic supplies.

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

"I learned this craft through visiting a friend at his workshop," recalls Chaloemphon. "I studied each step to produce items in leather. I opened a small leather shop in Khonkaen province but it wasn't as successful as it should have been because I loved giving my work to my friends as souvenirs. Leather craft is more than a source of income: through leather, I also meet many new friends around the world. My wife works with me, and she recycles the leftovers into accents for her handbags."

"Thank you very much for your kindness. I'll use your money for the most efficiency. Novica can help people all around the world."
