Achara Silver Co., Ltd. is one of Thailandâ€™s leading manufacturers and exporters of handmade Hill Tribe silver jewelry and accessories. Achara Silver is located in Chiang Mai, the center of northern Thailand. It was established in 1980 by the name â€śAchara Silverwareâ€?and â€śAcharaâ€™s Treasureâ€?by Ms. Achara Patthong and Mr. Withaya Cheunjit. Their creativity to produce the best and most unique products out of the highest purity of silver, has launched them from a small business to a company that is well known and rapidly growing. During its 20 years of business its customers include, Thai and oversea customers, the Royal personages of Thailand as well as Hollywood movie star Mel Gibson; who visited and purchased our products while he was visiting Chiang Mai.
Our most quality products are based on the hill tribe style that is made with and without semi-precious stones. We offer both silver accessories and finished products of own designs produced by our professional designers. We also have exclusive designs from our customers with the enhancement by the skilled hands of a practiced artisan.
We have learned that the hill tribe people have a wonderful skill of making silver ornaments but most of them have not traditionally considered their jewelry as marketable. As our companyâ€™s mission is to help poor people to earn their living and to provide a stable economy for them. We decided to work with the hill tribe people and help them to improve their handcraft skills, and contribute a quality control to enhance their centuries-old traditional methods. We hope to bring acceptance and to also promote their culture worldwide.
In 1983, we started working with the first group called â€śYaoâ€?or â€śMienâ€?who are very talented in making silver ornaments such as bangles, bracelets and necklaces. Two years later, we also adopted another tribal group called â€śKarenâ€?or â€śYangâ€?who are specialized in creating 99% silver beads and pendants. At the present, there are over 500 hill tribe silversmiths from Chiang Mai, Lamphun and Nan provinces working for our company. They have learned to create quality products with the unique appearance, which represents centuries of their culture, art, and living.
Itâ€™s our great honor to be able to serve worldwide customersâ€?demands for more than 20 years and we hope to continue a good relationship with all customers. We are really proud to present our distinctive products as you can see on the product section in this website. We also continuously create new exciting designs following the world trends and market needs. We would like to extend this invitation to you to join us.
