Songkran is Thai’s New Year Day Festival, observed by pouring water on Buddha images, as well as other bathing and purifying rituals. Worldwide, it’s more famously known as a time when the citizenry take to the streets to splash each other with water!
Whether or not you attend the official water-splashing fun at Bangkok Songkran Splendours Festival from April 13 to 15, now is the perfect time to feature Thai brand MookV and the delightful, unique bag designs that make their products recognisable at a glance.
The art of weaving has slowly experienced a rebirth in popularity over the last couple of years. We think it has to do with a hankering for a slower, bygone era: a time when every piece of fabric was made with careful attention to each stitch sewn, every strand woven.
These elements are beautifully visible in MookV’s colourful clutch bag collection, featuring weaving techniques that elevates the humble, hand-held purse into a work of art.
The mastermind behind it all? Artist-designer Ploenchan “Mook” Vinyaratn who gets her inspiration from the colours, textures, and tribal patterns she encounters through her travels around the world.
Celebrate Songkran in your own way this year with Thai brand MookV’s handwoven clutch bag or a handmade sling bag, a visual celebration of harmony between Thai traditional aesthetic and modern fashion.
