Ayodhya combines natural materials with traditional Thai handicraft techniques and patterns to create highly functional and stunningly cosmopolitan products.

Founded in 1994 by M.L. Pawinee Santisiri, Ayodhya has long been a pioneer in the embrace of natural, local, reusable and environmentally-friendly materials in their product and home furnishing designs. By working with local villagers and hill tribes across the country to source local materials including water hyacinth – the brand’s signature medium – and hemp and cotton, Ayodhya provides supplementary income and skills development to Thai villagers. The brand’s conscious approach to sustainable design also reduces waste in the natural environment and addresses the pressing issue of global warming.
