Nokhookdesignis a small T-shirt and art shop located in a peaceful area of Chiang Mai citynear Chiang Mai Gate. Products are originally designed, creative and veryunique. Everything is created by the designer and guaranteed to be very limited,rare to find with no copied pieces of works sold. The concept of Nokhookdesignis to find a balance between traditional Lanna culture, clichéd Lannareproduced arts and culture, and a modern way of how to interpret traditionalculture to fit with an alternative modern lifestyle. Although the products maynot seem to be obviously Lanna in style as most people would be acquaintedwith, they carry with them a strong love of their roots reflected through a newstyle of art. One important principle they cling onto is, ‘culture should beable to change, develop and improve rather than being frozen, kept untouchedand forgotten’.

KittiyaMoonsarn (Kwang)

A graduate of B.A and M.A in English from CMU, she has been working purely as a translator and copywriter for many magazines in Chiang Mai for more than 6 years. Apart from writing for pleasure and money, she is now teaching at Chiang Mai Ratchabhat University and Maejo University.The position is called ‘manager’, but in fact she does all the things that Anukun refuses to do (labour work and anything with figures!).


He is a pugand he is our public relations representative. Come to visit our shop and hewill welcome you (over-react) with joy and happiness. His special talent isthat he can eat everything except dog food!!!!! (Really everything, includingrubber and cotton balls)

P.S. Ifyou come and see us and our door is closed, it doesn’t always mean we are away– we are just afraid that our PR will run away from home!
