What makes this festival so special is that almost any kind of art you’ve seen in Thailand is represented here. There are hundreds of stalls by various designers and shops, showcasing fashion of all kinds, incredible jewellery, beautiful bags, furniture, and much more. Each year, Chiang Mai Design Week has a distinct theme, but all events are still focused on highlighting the raw artistic talent of locals. As you walk around and get to meet the artists behind the spectacular works of art, you’ll understand why Chiang Mai is such a creative hotbed for world-class art.
Aside from stalls selling their artistic wares, the event also invites everyone to come and join their workshops, talks, dialogues, and other activities. There’s no better way to get to know the local community better than by attending, as representatives from international organisations, architecture, graphic and fashion design, and other creative industries are in full force each year.
