About Us


Hi! I’m Na – the founder and creator of the beautiful products you see on Mala Handworks.  

When I was 7 years old, I made my first kaftan in my home village in Northeast Thailand. The women around me were known for making handmade fabrics and turning them into beautiful garments. Being surrounded by them helped me learn these skills at an early age. 

As I grew, so did my passion for making kaftans. I dreamt of becoming an entrepreneur and designing clothes as a full-time job.

When my husband and I moved to Maryland, USA, I invested my savings into materials and started an online shop. Mala Handworks was born. My shop started with me as the only worker. We’ve grown since then but are still a small team.  

Thank you for supporting my dream!
