Our main raw materials
Recycling is complex because products often contain
a mix of ingredients. So, it’s a mess.
There is more than 3,600 leather sewing factories in Thailand, which produced at least 5,400 tons of cow leather scraps per year.
Thaïs brings that scraps back alive, sterilized them to make the product hygienically safe and in turn fully recyclable.
Leather scraps from sewing factories contain various type of materials and colors.
We separated and categorized all these materials gently and carefully by hands.
Furthermore, there’s a variety of colors available!
We are fascinated by the color of each piece of leather, like how Monet fell in love with light and shadow.
Then, we transform all that useless scraps into our heart-made unique and one-of-a-kind eco-leather.
Our eco-leather colors fall into 3 main categories; dark, light and colorful,
which made our material unique.
Local handwoven Thai fabric is the fabric that we use to combine with our eco-leather to make a perfect Thaïs’ handmade eco-product.
We selected these local fabric from “The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Technique of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand".
This foundation gathers handwoven fabric from local people in every region of Thailand, which gives the local people an opportunity to gain income instead of relying on seasonal cultivation.
Furthermore, we also select the local fabric from the community of handwoven fabric, for example,
Phum Riang village, Chaiya district, Surat Thani province from the southern part of Thailand.
They use dyeing colors that derived from nature to make a perfect handwoven cotton or even silk fabric.
