Chiang Mai Cotton is a must for anyone interested in beautiful, simple clothing that is well crafted. The shop sells clothing made from eco-friendly dyes and natural fabrics, such as cotton and linen. All of the clothing is made locally and the detailing is hand worked. While catering primarily to women, there is also a small selection of men’s and children’s clothing. The store reflects Chiang Mai Cotton’s design philosophy and is decorated using natural products. The clothing racks and the hangers are wooden and outside the shop is a shaded area with hanging plants and a vase water fountain, all of which provides an atmosphere that is cosy and inviting. Chiang Mai Cotton currently has 3 branches in addition to its main location, two on Nimmanhaemin Soi 4, and one at the Night Bazaar. For those customers who are only in Thailand temporarily, not to worry, Chiang Mai Cotton also has online shop and ships internationally.
