Samart's story

Samart is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in handcrafted jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Samart has been selling through NOVICA since 2014. This is his story:

"In addition to furniture components, I craft bracelets. My daughter has practiced on the lathe since 9th grade. She turns small pieces such as lotuses for worship, drawer handles, etc. and sells work at a market in Sankamphaeng to pay for her education and personal expenses. Nowadays, I give back as a village representative and as a village health volunteer, coordinating with public health agencies to improve health care in the community."

"Thank you for making Thai products known in many countries. New crafts are happening all the time. I am very proud to work with you. I will produce new designs and develop my products even better. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to come up with new ideas."
