I saw an opportunity to share this beauty with the world and decided to start an online store selling these locally made clothing items abroad. I focused on creating a brand that celebrates Thai culture while offering modern, stylish designs that resonate with international customers.

[Thai Life]: That's a fantastic blend of culture and business! How did you manage to establish your company while being a digital nomad?
