Waraporn's story

Waraporn is an artisan from Thailand who specializes in artisan crafted wooden games and tableware. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raintree wood as well as a new saw and planer for her workshop.

Waraporn has been selling through NOVICA since 2016. This is her story: "I'm the eldest daughter in the family, and I grew up with the wooden games my father crafted. I'd watch him select wood, dry it naturally and assemble to complete a game. They are challenging and fun — something you’ll never find in computer games.

My father founded our family's game workshop. He created brain teasers, interlocking puzzles and wooden board games. My favorites are the wooden games because I grew up with them. They teach me to think, plan and concentrate, and I apply these skills in my everyday life. Along with the wooden games, we now craft wooden tableware. People appreciate the beauty and the uniqueness of the natural wood pattern."

"I am very grateful for the opportunities and support you have provided to artisans like me."
