DoiTung presents skillfully made local handicrafts in contemporary designs. A Thai-owned social enterprise, DoiTung’s handicrafts are made by ethnic minorities in Northern Thailand with great delicacy, and through environmentally-friendly processes. Each product epitomizes the uniqueness of nature, local stories and indigenous cultures of Doi Tung. The DoiTung social enterprise was established by the Mae Fah Luang Foundation under Royal Patronage, which was set up around 30 years ago by HRH Princess Srinagarindra, mother of King Rama VIII and King Rama IX. The enterprise’s business model enables local hill tribes to give up their reliance on illicit drug cultivation and trafficking, by transforming them into skilled artisans and craftsmen. This holistic approach also promotes self-reliance by providing sustainable incomes for their communities, as well as preserves the area’s local environment and cultural heritage.

T-Style Thai Spirit

As part of T-Style or Thailand Style, ‘T-Style: Thai Spirit’ showcases the agility of Thai manufacturers and designers, something that the world is looking for at the moment. We have high quality manufacturers and creative designers, and with these people we can create and develop products that match the changing needs of consumers in these uncertain times. We also have a group of designers who can transfer the Thai spirit to authentic products with unique characters. The concept of ‘Thai Spirit’ combines high quality manufacturing, design flexibility and human touch together. With these unique value propositions, products that are designed and manufactured in Thailand will have a future in global markets. ‘T-Style: Thai Spirit’ has curated a collection of Thailand’s leading manufacturers and designers that have a potential to grow further in the global market. The collection can be divided into two groups, which are ‘T-Style Brands’ which are leading lifestyle product manufacturers, and ‘T-Stylers’ which present internationally-recognized Thai designers. The collection is empowered by a list of winners of the Design Excellence Award (DEmark), one of Asia’s most prestigious design awards known as ‘the Oscars of the Thai design industry’’. The two collections share one common goal, which is to promote Thai design in the global market through publications in Thai and international media and exhibitions in world-class showcases.” The Department of International Trade Promotion hopes that the launch in a global platform like MOM will make the world see Thai designers and brands in a new light. When the Thai Spirit, technical skills and creativity of Thai designers are matched with high quality, world- class manufacturing standards and digital savvy, the results are extraordinary Thai creations that can be in the same league as the world’s design leaders.
