Tikkiwallah is an artisan textile & craft studio based in Chiang Mai and Luang Prabang. I started this project mid-way into the pandemic as a way to connect artisans and travelers. Even though travel is resuming, and markets are filling up again, many artisans still need access to broader markets. And so, Tikkiwallah carries on!
Tikkiwallah celebrates the vibrant energy and creativity found in markets across Southeast Asia. This is a place for lively conversations, for building relationships and for supporting the use and preservation of handmade textiles and crafts.
How we work
Handmade. Natural Fibers.
Tikkiwallah collaborates with artisans and market-sellers who work independently and/or in the ‘informal’ craft sector. We connect communities through the appreciation and use of handmade textiles and crafts. We adhere to fair trade principles, and we are committed to using eco-friendly processes. Our textiles are handmade, using natural fibers, plant-based dyes and traditional looms.
