    Muse, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 02/05/2015

Pornthip, 30, who has known the two for years, is a girly girl with an up-and-at-em character. Cool and composed, Wowdow was born and bred in America, while her artsy sister grew up in Chiang Mai. Pornthip, described by her two friends as a "go getter", was raised in Chantaburi province. Despite their diverse backgrounds, what the trio share is their passion for tie-dyed fabric, and the love for the brand they've built together.

    » Each year, 8,000 Thai babies are born with congenital heart disease.
