What you'll do
I belong to the Akha mountain tribe of Thailand. Among mountain tribes, the Akha are said to have the most gorgeous and fashionable ethnic costumes. In this experience, you will learn how to knit a makurame bracelet, and bring the finished bracelet back home. My husband is a jeweler. He learned about diamonds in Israel, a diamond trading mecca. He will produce birthstones for every month. Everything is prepared with natural stones. You will choose your birthstone, and we will braid it into a bracelet. I wear ethnic costumes in the workshop. Also, I will bring my one-year-old son, who wears ethnic costumes as well. At the end of this workshop, we will have time to take photos together. This experience will be a wonderful memory of Thailand. The experience time is three hours, but I guarantee you will finish. If anyone cannot finish in time, I will complete the braiding. You are sure to bring a bracelet back home.
I am a designer and craftsman of the MAKURAME bracelet. My bracelet is exported to Japanese jewelry company which is much strict for quality, and it is also displayed in department store such a Takashimaya etc. in Japan. Currently, it is displayed in 3 stores in Bangkok. In a popup shop invited to Laforet HARAJUKU in Japan, it was also published in the newspaper. In this way I am currently working on the making of MAKURAME craft. Through this experience, I would like to promote the culture of mountain tribe Akha! :)
