The city of Lampang, in Northern Thailand, is known for its lush jungles filled with trees. Once a hub for the logging industry, a large number of elephants once lived and worked in the city. The Thai Elephant Conservation Center, whose goal is protecting these amazing pachyderms, is also located in Lampang. This tropical paradise is where artisan Aree calls home. She first learned the art off wood carving from her father when she was just 8 years old. Now Aree is a well renowned master wood carver in Lampang, and with her skill with a hammer and chisel, she creates truly unique pieces of home décor. Elegant and beautiful, her one-of-a-kind pieces will add a beautiful touch of Thailand to any room in your home.

“I love the feeling that wood has, the grain and the color is beautiful to me. That I feel joy when the wood is transformed into something beautiful. I have been making wood carvings for many years and it is much harder now to make a living. There are many competitors, making it difficult to get a good price. Some designs take days or even weeks to complete and the cost of materials is also increasing. That is why I am very grateful for my partnership with AeraVida, because with their help I can reach new customers. Because of our partnership, I am able to employ my relatives and neighbors so that I may help my community to earn income. This allows me to keep the old traditions alive and that is what motivates my work.” -Aree
