More about the designer, Sarisa:
Sarisa is a 33-year clothing designer and vintage textile collecting veteran. If her work at all catches your eye, as I imagine it will, I urge you to read more about her in some of the Chiang Mai stories I wrote for the site, which tells more about her extraordinary spirit and path, from young farm girl to successful clothing designer.
Sarisa creates from the heart, and her love shines through each piece. A woman also after my own heart, she only creates one-of-a-kind pieces. Each garment is regal and sensuous, and can make all kinds of women look and feel beautiful in it. Made from strong, vintage fabrics (typically hemp), these garments have already stood the test of time and are, consequently, as low fuss and practical as they are beautiful. Most of her vintage fabric was made by Hmong women, who are revered for their woven clothing, often richly decorated with embroidery, applique, cutwork, knot work, pom-poms, batik and silver.
