"Even if embroidery is a traditional skill for the women in our area and everybody can do it, I still need to learn more...."
"My name is Anchalika Chamnan, I come from northern Thailand, which is considered to be the gateway to Burma, Laos, and China. My hometown is renowned as a trading town and my family and relatives are involved in different types of trading. At present I am studying geography at the university but when I go home, I stay with my aunt, since she works in the textile trade.
"She began by buying textiles from people and selling to others. But about a year after that, she started to design her own textiles, transforming them into different types of work. She needs many people to help her, so I am here to help her out. And in so doing, I'm learning her craft. Even if embroidery is a traditional skill for the women in our area and everybody can do it, I still need to learn more about patterns to create more interesting pieces.
"I am glad that we will have the chance to display our work to the world. To show more work is not only a channel for us to earn more, it means we can have the opportunity to support people from our village by offering them more work."

I ordered the Mountain Signals handbag made by Anchalika Chamnan -- it is beautiful! The embroidery work is awesome -- it is so finely detailed. I could not be more pleased with the bag. It is truly a work of art -- Ms. Chamnan is a great artist and I would recommend any of her work. I was thrilled with how the package came, too -- it was wrapped in beautiful paper like a gift. The postcard included was a very special touch as well. Thank you, Ms. Chamnan, and thank you Novica!
I received my purse today and all I can say is WOW! It is gorgeous. The shipping took no time and got here in a very timely manner. I opened the box and I was so amazed. I called all my friends to tell them of what I had gotten. It is beautiful; I could not thank you enough for the excellent work that is so evident every time I look at the purse. This is definably one item that I am going to cherish for a very long time. Thank you!
Anchalika Chamnan: The Mountain Signal Purse is adorable ! Thank you for the beautiful work and fast shipping !! Will order again in the future.
I ordered the purse ""Mountain Signals"" from Anchalika Chamnan. I am quite pleased with the quality and beauty of her work. The bag is made from a material that seems extremely durable, and the two different compartments make for easy accessibility. The embroidery is lovely, and the wooden beads add a unique touch. I am much impressed and will consider Anchalika's products whenever I visit Novica.
I just received my new purse. I really like it. Great size and wonderful colors that will go with everything. You do very good work. Peace! Becky

I purchased pillow covers because I liked the colors in the picture; I was totally unprepared for their incredible beauty and the exquisite embroidery work - the pictures don't even come close to doing them justice! Everyone who has seen them is dazzled, and I am so pleased that I sent for them. They are also an amazing bargain, given the extraordinary quality of work. Thank you so much!

I purchased a purse for my friend, and one for me, since I couldn't resist the colorful designs and the beautiful artwork. Thanks!
Pfafftown, NC, USA
I just recieved my blue miracle pocket book and love it! It is exactly as described. The embroidery is exceptional. I really loved the packaging. What a pleasant surprise to find it wrapped and tied with a cute piece of twine. So pretty, and I loved the postcard she sent. I don't know what she wrote but I appreciated the personal touches anyway. Melissa

I ordered a purse from Anchalika Chamnan and I was amazed at how beautiful and well made it was! I get compliments all the time on how lovely it is. I love the fact that I know the name and hometown of the artist, it's a rare thing to have that connection. I was also pleased at how quickly it came all the way from Thailand! I was also able to track it with the emails Novica sent. All in all a very good experience. I will order again from her, and will use Novica as often as possible. Thank you!
I love my ""ultimate blue purse with phone holder"". The picture could not do it justice. It is really beautiful! Thank you so much for such a lovely and very high quality product. And the whole ordering process through NOVICA was a real pleasure. I can't wait to go shopping some more!
I'm not sure I could have found an item like this in any department store. It is unique, eco-friendly, and so well crafted. The choice of colors on the bag I ordered are wonderful. And the other details, such as the connecting hoops and latch - very creative and beautiful. Thanks so much!!!

Hi and thank you to artisan Anchalika Chamnan for the beautiful tribes identity purse. It was a gift to my niece who is starting her last year in high school and I wanted her to go back with a more adult bag. She is young in mind and heart but growing up fast. This purse has made her very happy with the thought of getting more sophisticated in appearance which of course may help her act so as well. She is thrilled and that is all that counts. Again thank you from myself and my niece EMILY.
Just wanted to say how beautifully made the COLOR NIGHT handbag is. I very much enjoy the unique clash of colors along with great craftsmanship. Thank You Very Much!
I purchased the Miracle Red purse. It is so beautiful. I get compliments on it all of the time. People take it to get a better look and are amazed at its beauty and detail. Thank you for sharing your art.
What a beautiful shoulder bag! I cannot wait to wear it and tell people of this artist. It is rich with detail, color, artistry and seams very durable. My daughter already wants me to pass it to her someday.
Today I received the first order I have ever placed with NOVICA. I am so pleased with the beautiful shoulder bag made by Anchalika Chamnan. It is so unusual and so well made. I am already using it. Thank you Anchalika. I also enjoyed the post card of the Thai temple.

I received the purse from her this week. It was beautiful, and when I carry it, I will think of the artistic touch that went into it.
I ordered the ""Color of Night"" shoulder bag. I am very happy with it-the color and detail are very beautiful. It has a zippered compartment that I didn't realize was there. Also the picture does not do it justice. I plan on giving this to a relative as a Christmas present and I know she will love it.Thank you so much!

I just received my second wood carving (A Heart Shared by Two) made by Made Wirata. I can just feel his emotions as he carved it when I hold and touch the wood. I also have the Anniversary Kiss. Both are just beautiful and I treasure them. He is a fine and sensitive artist!
If you are looking for beauty, quality, and uniqeness, then Chamnan's work is what you are seeking!!
Received the Hemp shoulder bag, 'Rain Forest' as a gift for my wife. She likes it very much. Thanks for the great work. Larry
I ordered ""Mountain Signals, ""Hmong Pride"" and ""Miracle Earth"", I couldn't choose just one! They are so beautiful, the colors and detailed embroidery. I carry a different one depending on my mood! Your work is exquisite and I am honored to own these beautiful creations!
I have just received the bag ""Rain Forest"", and I am so pleased with it. It is absolutely lovely and so beautifully made. It makes me feel good wearing it and think about that there is a young woman in Thailand, named Anchalika Chamnan, who makes it with her hands and does it so well, and this beautiful embroidery! I just love it!!! Also the postcard and the gift wrapping, it is just lovely! Thank you Anchalika, and thank you people at Novica. Warm greetings from Iceland.
My Anchalika Chamnan purse, arrived on Dec23rd. I immediately emptied the tired looking, 20yrs old Lands End purse that I just couldn't part with, until now. I love my new purse, it's chic,functional and not like any other. My teenage daughter approved the new look too, in fact, she helped me pick the purse out online. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you.

I ordered the purse ""Chiang Kong"" about six months ago. I have gotten so many complements on it. Everyone wants to know where I got it, admiring the beautiful embroidery. I took it on an overseas trip and abused it, using it more as a small pack than a purse. It held up beautifully, and still looks new. What quality workmanship!
I bought the Midnight Blossom shoulder bag, and couldn't be happier with it. It is just as nice as the description and picture say it is, and it arrived so fast. It is very pretty, well made, and unique!
I just received my ""Cotton shoulder bag, 'Northern Vogue'"" today. It is absolutely just what I wanted. Unique, beautiful embroidery, functional and well made. The shipment was fast (used normal shipping) and the communication from this company is superb. I am 110% satisfied! Thanks so much and I will purchase from Anchalika again.
I ordered the Earth Miracle handbag as a birthday present to myself. Not only did the package arrive beautifully wrapped, but the handbag is a work of art itself! I will definitely order more of Anchalika's bags in the future.
Absolutely the most beautiful Bag I now own. The workmanship is stunning. Such intricate detail, I cannot believe how beautiful it is. Thank You so much...
I ordered the Miracle Red bag for my teenage daughter. She (and I) love it. The craftsmanship is beautiful, very well made and came beautifully wrapped. Thank you so much!
Anchalika, I am delighted with the hemp purse and phone pouch, Ultimate Blue. Your workmanship seems faultless to me. I can see that these little beauties are going to be constant companions for me. So practical and so beautiful. Lovely reminders of your beguiling Thai spirit. Bless you.
This purse is absolutely beautiful. It was packaged so nicely too. I am thrilled to have such a unique and well-crafted item. I wear it proudly.
Today I received my Chiang Kong bag. It came quickly, and it was wrapped beautifully. The bag itself is a work of art! Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Anchalika for sharing this wonderful talent. I would definitely recommend this bag or anything by Anchalika to anyone.
Hi, I love your bag(mountain) It is beautiful and i think you are truly blessed.I really like the pattern,the pocket at the front and the handle with all the bead work. It is like nothing I ever owned before.Thank you.

I ordered the purse ""Mountain Signals"" about three years ago or more. I absolutely love the design and colors! And the bag has lasted well all this time! It is just now starting to show signs of wear. Thank you so much sharing your amazing talents!
I recently purchased a hemp shoulder bag ('Earth Miracle' 117745) by this artist. The bag was as described/pictured and is of very good quality. It arrived quickly and was beautifully wrapped. I especially appreciate the information included with the bag, as it makes this item feel more personal. I really appreciate knowing where this bag comes from, who made it, and a little bit of the history surrounding it. I am thoroughly pleased with this piece of work, and it makes me feel confident that any future purchase from Novica will be of similar good workmanship and will be enjoyed. Thank you, Ms. Chamnan, for an excellent job. Your photo will be in my mind every time I wear this bag (which will be often, as it is to be my primary purse!). Exactly what I was looking for!
I got a bag made by Anchalika in September and simply love it! It is very nicely done and very very beautiful! I love it! She did amazing job! One of my favorite purses now!!! Thank you !!

What a beautiful and delicate artist you are. Everything is in perfect harmony and the compliments I receive from people is breath taking! I have three of your creations and only take them out on Presidential Shows. Thank You Anchalika for your wonderful artistry. Sincerely, Carolyn J Bradley
I'm a bag fanatic. When I saw Chamnan's Lotus Bag, I had to have it. I hadn't ordered from Novica before so I wasn't sure about the quality. There were so many great review's of Chamnan's products, I decided to take the chance. I want to add to the great reviews. This bag is amazing! It's gorgeous and is very well made. It's a sturdy bag. It has large pockets to categorize all my stuff. It's a big bag, but not huge. It's the perfect size for me. I love my bag!
I've purchased the Mountain Signals shoulder bag. It is beautiful, I like the design and the beads make it very interesting. The stitching is lovely and overall the bag is made of a thick, sturdy and high quality fabric. The two compartments and front pocket are very useful. This bag will last for years! Thank you Anchalika!
I ordered the Hmong Pride bag, it arrived in record time, and was beautifully wrapped. This bag is more beautiful in reality than it is in the picture. The craftmanship of this bag is exquisite, the colors vibarnt, and it is a perfect size for everyday. I love this bag and look forward to buying more bags from Anchalika.
In looking at pictures of the items designed by this artist I was impressed and decided to order the Mountain Signals bag. Yesterday the package with the purse arrived and I absolutely fell in love with it. The workmanship is incredible and the design is even more beautiful than shown in the photos. When I ordered the item I thought it might be a Christmas gift for someone else but now that I've seen it I'm keeping it and will order something else for my relative. The bag was beautifully wrapped too and arrived much more quickly than I thought it would. If you order something from this artist you will not be disappointed.
Dear Anchalika, I just received two of your beautiful bags - 'moonlight' and 'sublime brown'. They are so lovely, just the way they were pictured. Thank you so much for the beautiful craftsmanship. I will definitely order from you again. The delivery was excellent too - so well done to Novica! Regards, Shanika from Australia.
i just got my cool hmong pride shoulder bag today! i love it ! it's so cool ! well done ! from chibcha
Your bag ""Midnight Blossom"" is wonderful with beautiful embroidery and lovely feel. Thank you!
I love this purse. It is so beautifully stitched, nicely lined. I get compliments on it whenever I use it. Thank you!
I just received your shoulder bag, 'Ethnic Stars', and I LOVE it so much! I've had my eye on it ever since I first saw it on Novica and I just had to have it. The workmanship is so incredible, you are very talented. Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world! I liked it so much that I curated a collection around it. :) Keep up your fabulous work!
Hi Anchlika. I just want to tell you how much I LOVE your Purple Lotus bag. I included it in one of my collections for the curation contest (A Vision in Purple) and, when it went on sale, I bought it immediately. It has exceeded my expectations. Not only is it just as pretty as the picture, but it is comfortable to carry and holds 8.5 x 11 in papers, making it extra practical. Thank you! :)
Dear Anchalika, I purchased your hemp shoulder bag 'Earth Miracle', and I am really happy with it, it has become my favourite shoulder bag! It is lovely, and very nicely made to the smallest detail. All my friends love it, I have received lots of compliments about it! Not only the bag is just what I had been looking for, but it also arrived wrapped beautifully. And I really liked the postcard from Thailand. I hope that I can visit the country soon! Thanks a lot! Marina
I love my shoulder bag ""music"" I have used it since it arrived and I've had so many compliments! I couldn't be happier. Juls Twombley
A beautiful purse. Ive had 3 compliments so far, it's light, colorful, and unusual. Thank you!
I received the Black Elephants on Parade handbag and I love it, however may I offer some advise. Put an open pocket inside for cell phones and I'd use a light fabric as the lining.
