Ayodhya was founded by M.L. Pawinee Santisiri. As the founder and design director, she was involved in a rural development research project that tried to find innovative ways of getting rid of water hyacinth that clog up waterways. With her design knowledge, this natural material was turned into contemporary crafts, and the brand Ayodhya was founded to create innovative and contemporary home accessories made of water hyacinth. Complemented with other local natural materials like cotton and hemp, Ayodhya shines in the global stage as an eco-friendly Thai brand. To date, Ayodhya has received many prestigious awards like Thailand Trust Mark, G-Mark awards from Japan and Merit Recognition in Design for Asia Award hosted by Hong Kong Design Centre.
