Redwing Imports Story

Hello Everyone and thank you for checking us out. Now I say " us " because when I started my ventures 22 years ago It was just me

I produce, design, redesign, export, wholesale and retail handcrafted products from North Thailand. I got my start 22 years ago as I was taken back with the most unique items that the Thai artisans had to offer .
My first year I started just purchasing and importing thinking that it was going to be a easy way to earn an income displaying my wares at markets ,shopping malls, music festivals and home shows . With finding this as a great opportunity I also found lots of obstacles.
While getting rave reviews from the direct market I was finding one of the most important issues was failing me...... "quality".

Knowing and learning that there was a market for these type of products I had to make a decision as to either address the issues or simply get out of the business.

After considering my options and knowing how much I enjoyed the people and their rich culture and realizing that this could be nothing but another great opportunity as I believe I had found the niche at this point.

From there I set up a work shop in order to introduce my necessary changes and upgrades and started building the relationships that I would need in order to succeed in this venture. Patience and learning how to be accustomed to Thai ways and culture led me to find a window of opportunity.

With a lot of back and forth between my changes and implementing them along with the production of the artisans I started exporting on a larger scale as my events got larger as well .

To date I have found myself involved in a wide variety of many different products and made so many great relationships and lessons along the way.
