Chiang Mai’s workshop is where creation takes all its meaning, where thoughts become matter.
The combination of Tara and Manop’s relentless energy is the impulse, the rest is left to the magic of encounters and synchronicities.
Things happen for a reason; our products were just meant to be born here.
Let us take you on a tour of the premises... First, the location couldn’t be better. Away from the hustle bustle, it is tucked in a little peaceful hideaway and yet, so close to everything the city has to offer.
All buildings, some in traditional Lanna wooden style, and some more modern, are connected by a common courtyard, creating a natural flow.
The décor is to the image of Numero 74’s spirit: simple and authentic.
Bare woodwork, traditional handcrafted baskets turned into light shades, antiques…humble, just like the people who work here.
In fact, it feels like the workshop has become their second home, all together as a family.
In the morning, it is common to see them bowing, lighting incense and making offerings to the Spirit House, which protects the place and the people.
When you enter a room, the atmosphere is peaceful: each gesture is made with mindfulness, pride and caring attention.
You will see people smile at each other, and sometimes have a good laugh.
People are working yes, but not in the same way we know it.
In Thailand, work and life are intertwined.
As you walk around, you might notice the big portraits hanging on all the walls. They are a constant reminder that there is something special inside everyone of us.
All of our creations come from this something special deep inside.
We are forever grateful for all the beautiful souls part of the Numero 74 family. Nothing would be possible without them!
