Siamese Dream Design

Sunday, December 11, 2011

Once in a while, I am introduced to an ethical clothing brand, which really sparks an interest, and right now that is Siamese Dream Design.

Siamese Dream Design are a mother daughter team who have lived and traveled in Asia for many years. Barbara and Amy are designing new unique products incorporating fascinating tribal and silk textiles from the Chang Mai region. They enjoy working with the indigenous people in the area, helping enable them to preserve their cultural traditions while providing a sustainable income for their families.

Not only are they doing good with their work, but I must show you some of their wonderful shoes which have been made using re-purposed Loation and Hmong textiles.

These stunning boots almost have me craving for winter. They are so much brighter and more colourful that you're average well-known branded fluffy boot don't you think?
