Meet Achara, the founder of Aravay. Achara grew up in northern Thailand, surrounded by beautiful mountains and lush rice fields. Her hometown of Chiang Mai is known for its rich, diverse culture: shimmering Buddhist temples, colorful ethnic hill tribes and a long tradition of handmade arts and crafts.
Achara started Aravay to share Chiang Mai’s unique artisanship with the world, which ranges from rich embroidery to colorfully hand-dyed natural materials. Aravay’s products hand made by Achara and her family and a few crafters in her hometown in Thailand. Aravay is a small family-run businesses.
