Numero 74 Our Company Artisan sewing machine

Born in 2009 to offer a poetic bohemian-inspired realm for children, Numero 74 soon became a laboratory of experimentation and expression.

Always inspired by our childhood dreams, we imagine creations of singular designs and colours, inviting little ones or grownups to turn life into a playground.

The magic of encounters led us to the land of smiles, Thailand, where our creations are handmade by our own artisans, working from home or small workshops, in a serene atmosphere. Passionate people, natural materials, handcrafted processes… we like finding beauty in authenticity.

Our spirit, nomadic, sometimes even feisty, takes us from one path to the other in a naturally flowing way: no need to know the destination as long as we stay connected to our essence.

We have so many ideas and projects dear to our heart, one of them is to share our passion with you: CREATIVITY.

A Beautiful Story

The story of Numero 74 is akin to Tara’s, aka Poupy, a French woman with a generous smile and sparkling eyes. She never hides her eternal child soul that shines, like a star, within her heart. She simply feels good among little ones, as if she had retained the essence of their sensitivity. She has actually spent several years organising the most beautiful parties and events for them.

Tara fell in love with Thailand and has been spending her holidays there for many years. The smiles, joie de vivre and serenity of the people warm her heart… Also, a baby elephant that her son and herself are particularly fond of guides them to Chiang Mai, in the North of the country.

As if it were meant to be, during another stay in Chiang Mai, she meets Manop, a tuk-tuk driver, who soon becomes a true alchemist. While Tara tells him about her dreams, Manop listens and helps bring them into the World. A strong practical man, he will implement everything possible to find artisan women whose know-how was almost forgotten and create the Numero 74 workshop, where Tara’s dearest dreams could finally be realised.

Handmade in Thailand

Numero 74’s creations come to life thanks to the work and know-how of artisan women from Thailand’s Northern villages. There, it is a world where machines have not replaced the human touch. Fabric cutting, sewing finishing touches, embroidery, crochet… every talent is honoured so that each woman feels free to do what she loves doing. The women, organised in self-managed cooperatives, work from home, with the sound of children laughing in the background, or from collective workshops. This way of preserving small rural communities makes our hearts skip a beat! No pressure to produce, nor obligation of results. The work atmosphere is relaxed, people take the time to look at each other, to share and smile.

The caring attentions come from the heart, not from a list of specifications. Pompoms are cut and brushed by hand and all products are washed with a delicately scented fabric softener in final preparation before packing.

This is how Numero 74 invented its own unique production style, guided by the will to value the talents of these artisan women who give the time, the attention and a lot of love to each creation.

Our People

Nothing would be possible without the sensitivity of the women and men who share the same dream. The way we work is both unique and unconventional: organising ourselves the way we see fit, with team members working from home and based across Europe and Thailand, while keeping a nomadic spirit, we remain open to the world out there.
