Weaving a Buzz
Chiang Mai

Don’t be fooled by the industrial, nondescript exterior. Weave Artisan Society is all the buzz about Chiang Mai. This creative hub was formed by a group of diverse and international friends and echoes their love of craft heritage while inviting it into a contemporary and dramatic space (that was formerly an ice factory). Set in the heart of Wualai, a historic community of silversmiths, Weave is part artisan studio and part performance space, with an in-house flower shop and barista featuring carefully selected local coffee. Julian Huang, one of the founders, speaks passionately about how he imagined a centre to showcase and tell stories of the many skilled artisans scattered throughout Chiang Mai. As a visitor, the remoteness of these craftsmen impedes exploration, but Weave offers the opportunity to visit a living community of artisans, all conveniently under one roof. Their concept store will surely leave you a few pennies poorer, but all in the name of supporting local makers! weaveartisansociety.com
