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.
The Kok Pubb Pouf is covered by a hand woven reed mat case created by Baan-Nong Phai weaving group in Surin province. The work combines traditional weaving techniques with modern stripe design.
As part of the brand’s home accessories line, the hand-woven Cyperus Wall Decoration turns a local material like cyperus plants into an eye-catching decorative item that can impart character, making any space look more interesting.
