It’s a Shoe Thing
It’s A Shoe Thing is one of the first brands in Chiang Mai to make handmade vegan shoes. Each pair is made without any animal products or by products like animal glue. The owner, Pooja Kothari Mehta being Jain by religion, has never used any animal products herself. She is also planning to launch clutches and bags later this year. She personally selects and inspects all the fabrics and then the patterns are drafted after which the skilled craftsmen create their magic. Each pair of shoe is not only animal friendly, but also designed for maximum comfort, providing soft padding to protect the heel, arch and ankle. The shoes range from 500-700 baht and while designed right here in Chiang Mai, each pair is handmade with love from India!
Panumart Tattoo maybe a bit out of the city centre, but the journey is worth it. The shop opens up to stunning views of green fields and has chilled and relaxed atmosphere so you can distress as you allow professionals to create permanent magic on your body. Cleanliness is of utmost importance and high grade guns and inks such as Electric Ink, Radiant Ink and Eternal Colours are used. The head artist, Ahm, is professionally trained and is an expert in realistic tattoos, although she can ink you up with any style you want. Shoot them a message or give them a call and begin designs with their team, with no pressure to get anything done if you are still undecided.
