Produced under “one roof” in a small cottage industry in Chiangmai, surrounded by a teak plantation, to the clatter of looms the wonderful weavers of Torboon make a charming collection of products from their hand-woven colourful cotton fabrics.
They make their artistic and unique designs come to life using time-honoured skills intertwined with local influences.
The name TORBOON Chiang Mai cleverly comprises two words – “TOR”, a verb meaning to “weave” or “pass something on” in Thai language and BOON, the designer’s name.
