Numero 74’s creations come to life thanks to the work and know-how of artisan women from Thailand’s Northern villages. There, it is a world where machines have not replaced the human touch. Fabric cutting, sewing finishing touches, embroidery, crochet… every talent is honoured so that each woman feels free to do what she loves doing. The women, organised in self-managed cooperatives, work from home, with the sound of children laughing in the background, or from collective workshops. This way of preserving small rural communities makes our hearts skip a beat! No pressure to produce, nor obligation of results. The work atmosphere is relaxed, people take the time to look at each other, to share and smile.
