Gold Rain grew up in the countryside of Myanmar. "Because of the civil war, we would move away from our farm and then back to it many times until we finally moved to a town further away from the fighting." One day, she stumbled upon a job opening posted by Noonday Collection's Artisan Partner in Thailand. They hired Gold Rain as their first Studio Director! "Noonday is keeping us busy," she says. "Partnership with Noonday has expanded our core workforce from three women working 15 hours per week to six women working 20-40 hours per week, and we are looking to hire more women this spring!"
