Paying homage to Thai textiles
To celebrate unique Thai textile wisdom, fashion brand Sirivannavari Bangkok recently launched the exclusive handbag collection S'Crafts Craftsmanship 2021, available at Iconcraft.
All bags are fashioned out of creative director HRH Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya's personal silk collections, with embroidery from Sirivannavari Embroidery Atelier and Academy to bring a contemporary spirit and conserve first-class craftsmanship.
The collection features unique designs such as Bag with Tassel, Pyramid Bag and Signature Bag as well as a traditional bucket bag, designed for everyday use. They incorporate the signature "S" and Peacock badge that harmoniously combine traditional and modern styles.
For more than 16 years, creative director Princess Sirivannavari has been using Thai fabrics and local materials to support communities across the country with an aim to create jobs and help villagers enhance the quality of their life.
Located on the 4th floor of Iconsiam, Iconcraft also has a showcase of attractive works by legendary Thai textile masters. The highlights include a unique hand-woven fabric by Veeratham Tragoolngernthai, who has revived ancient gold brocade silk weaving and the head of "Gold Brocade Chan Soma" group from Surin.
Galerie de Himmapan has used colourful silk and traditional royal techniques to craft pillowcases, handbags and shawls with intricate embroidery, while Princess Sirivannavari's signature hand-women silk pattern kor chao fa is also used to create exquisite folding fans adorned with traditional hand-paintings.
The opening event was attended by celebrities such as Pasinee Limatibul, ML Songlak Svasti, Ratirod Chulajata, Patcharinruja Juntaronanont, Kitipak Kasornsirithorn and Thanchanok Phagudom.
