Five Eco-friendly Loungewear Brands In Thailand To Wear All Over Your House
Fashion should always make you and the planet feel good. Thus, it is crucial to shop eco-friendly.
With the pandemic holding everyone hostage in our homes, getting dressed in formal outfits is the last thing on our minds. The stay-at-home order has taught us that being comfortable is the best thing. Loungewear always offers the comfort you are looking for. Here are some Thai eco-friendly brands of loungewear that will keep you comfortable and leave your mind guilt-free.
Siamese Dreams makes comfortable garments that are perfect for a full day in bed or even working from home. After failing to find loungewear that was both playful and consciously made, founder Mika Wassenaar took matters into her own hands by creating an eco-friendly brand, Siamese Dreams. The brand is based in Phuket, taking inspiration from its surroundings.
Taktai is one of the most popular sustainable Thai fashion brands. They use their own original unique bamboo fiber blended with rayon and cotton to create their incredibly shiny, soft, and smooth fabric. They try to involve the local community in their production, and feature products with minimalistic designs. This allows the outfits to stay timeless so that you can keep them for a longer period.
This eco-friendly brand has partnered with artisanal communities, natural cotton farmers, and local craftspeople. Their materials are all organic, locally sourced, and chemical-free — some are even created from the off-cut fabric from previous creations. Founder Passawee Kodaka takes pride in appreciating the weaving techniques that are a part of Thai culture. Not only is the production of the clothing ethically conscious but so are the after-sales.
One effective way to mitigate waste is to buy made-to-order clothes, and that is exactly what Sasi Knits does. Making sure you can lounge in style, Sasi Knits comes up with designs that are ideal for any occasion. Crop tops can be paired with anything, making sure that they can be dressed up or down. The knitted tops are playfully named after different noodle types, like ‘Sen Lek’ or ‘Gray Jub’, and these knits can come in whatever your preferred street-cart order may be.
One man’s trash might be another man’s treasure. Madmatter Studio aims to transform waste into clothing that is worth something. This casual lifestyle brand featuring contemporary designs and quality fabrics puts the most eco-friendly practices in use. You wouldn’t even know that their garments were reworked and renewed. Using playful colors, their items are fun and easy to pair.
From mitigating the world’s water pollution to supporting fair labor practices, shopping sustainable fashion will certainly be a gratifying experience.
