Story Behind the Art:
Hello, My name is Vinita Tongtawat. I was born in Lampang, then moved on to study in Chiang Mai and when I finished high school, I completed my bachelor's degree at the Faculty of Fine Art, Silpakorn University. Here I discovered my true identity: I express myself through tangible art, especially by creating unique colors with batik apparel. My thesis was on batik textiles with a very good combination of colors. My work was selected for publication on a pamphlet for The Student's Thesis Work. All of my pieces selected for exhibition were sold out. I started to work for a home decor company in Bangkok as a designer. By 1989 we had a small son and daughter, and we decided to follow our dreams for our children to grow in a land of peace, beauty and with a simple lifestyle. Chiang Mai is the city that offered us what we were looking for, plus it is also the center Thai of handicrafts. I started my own venture focusing on textile arts. I have the ability to make a good selection of colors for dyeing fibers. The color combinations are beautiful and definitely reflect my identity as well. At the beginning, I studied the color absorbing qualities of each type of fiber in order to get beautiful, stable colors. Some fabrics require pretreatment before dyeing. After that, I started dyeing fabric by doing a few pieces at a time, boiling them in a small old pot. Once I made sure that I could get beautiful and stable colors, then I started to experiment with some techniques to add texture to the fabric, like waxed batik, tie-dye and stitching. I constantly produce new colors to complete my stock. My designs received good response from customers who loved my work. They started to place orders. I started with a small pot for dyeing and eventually moved to a big pan with a diameter about the spread of human arms. The one important thing for me is to always mix the dyeing colors myself to get the right color. Before dyeing, I check every piece of fabric to make sure that it is good quality with no defect at all. Since I studied art, the very first lot of my production reflected quite a lot about myself. I am very happy with what I have achieved so far. I have a small area for my fabric work. I'm getting older now and my venture is stable, and I have my daughter who graduated from art school as well to help me take care it. Now I have more time to work on what I love: waxed drawing and coloring to make batik. It is the same art work I did when I was studying.
