Artisan: Chirada

Artisan Chirada

"Hello! My name is Chirada Loetparisanyu. I was born on April 7, 1973. My parents worked in agriculture before turning to handicrafts. They opened a workshop in Chiang Mai, which I look after, and now they have another one in Bangkok.

"I graduated from Kasetsart University with a degree in Agriculture in 1996. I have always been interested in handicrafts that are made from natural materials, so I observed and learned from magazines, books, television programs and everything around me. I started with textiles and, by 2000, I was transforming textiles into clothes and dresses. By late 2005 and the beginning of 2006, I was tooling leather handbags, which appealed to many people. I then explored the possibility of including hill tribe cotton textiles into my designs, which continued to feature quality leather. All of my designs are about our Thai lifestyle. I adapt local styles with modern trends.

"My work starts with something I like, and I develop the design from there based on my own imagination as well as what I see around me. I also welcome people's opinions on my designs so I can improve. I am a person who always likes to do everything, better and better. If I feel something isn't good enough, I don't give up. I will always try my best until I achieve what I want."
