TRADITIONAL KRAJOOD SEAGRASS AND WATER HYACINTH HANDMADE HANDBAGS FROM THAILAND.
"Traditional weaving in Thailand has been practiced for generations, but I want to breathe new life into it by fusing hand-woven materials with contemporary design principles to produce bags that are both lovely and fashionable and something that you would be so proud to wear."
Thai Bag Company Background The Thai Bag Co., formed in early 2022 by husband-and-wife pair Matthew and Dara, is a Northamptonshire UK-based business specialising in handmade bags from Thailand. Each Thai Bag Co. handbag has the brand’s signature natural Thai Seagrass and Water Hyacinth fabrics, as well as the brand’s signature elegant, understated lines and meticulous attention to detail.
Matthew and Dara, a family of three, spent time living in Phuket, Issan, and Hua Hin Thailand, where they came across quaint communities populated by generations of artisans working with sustainable materials like seagrass and water hyacinth. Awestruck by the extraordinary quality of the local craftsmen’s Krajood work, they became friends with several of them. It was the dream of the husband and wife partners to launch a line of authentically high-end Thai handbags that were both beautiful and practical but nevertheless priced reasonably.
The Thai Bag Co produces one-of-a-kind designer luxury handbag items, which are created in the many communities in Thailand from north to south utilising only the best quality Water Hyacinth and cut Seagrass plants.
Handmade by some of Thailand’s most skilled craftsmen, each Thai Bag Co bag design takes at least 25 hours to complete and is meant to be treasured for years to come.
To us, each of these bags represents a genuine piece of art and a bag-making talent that has been passed down through many generations and we are desperate to keep this amazing tradition alive.
The Thai Bag Co is constantly humbled by the positive responses to our products, especially because we are still a young business that just launched at the beginning of 2022.
As our business expands, we want to establish a charitable foundation to aid the underprivileged in Thailand. We are especially committed to providing more children with the financial stability and educational opportunities they’ll need to have bright futures.
LETS HELP TO CONVERT A BEAUTIFUL BAG IDEA AND TURN INTO A REALITY
We really hope that you enjoy watching this wonderful Bag making presentation video that was produced by TAT Tourism Authority of Thailand. It highlights the truly amazing skills and knowledge of these local Thai artisans and promotes the hard work of a great number of people who are employed in these local Thai communities. Bag-making traditions have been passed down from generation to generation, therefore let's continue to support the excellent job that TAT Thailand is doing and help conserve these local communities at the same time.
