Above Studio is an artisanal accessories brand that presents traditional handcrafted collections made in Thailand by local artisans. To cherish the art of local craftsmanship and pass it on to next generations to come, Above Studio's key commitment is to use only local resources available in Thailand. Through beautiful handwoven accessories, Above Studio shares the beauty of Thai culture, local natural materials, the skills of the makers and the heritage of the land with the rest of the world. Above Studio is also focused on its bold social mission: the profits from each product sold will contribute aid for local communities, and help to sustain and empower them. We spoke to Above 's founder, Sommy, about their first curated collection of woven baskets, and the importance of preserving the heritage of traditional craftsmanship today.
