Founded in 2010 in Bangkok by 3 best friends who fall in love with high quality bags and accessories, CONTAINER has been producing bags and accessories inspired by the pure lines of Japanese and Scandinavian architecture and interior design. With a passion for true craftsmanship, products are patiently produced in the spirit of traditional manufacturing.
For CONTAINER, the production of a unique bags and accessories begins with the uncompromising choice of material. The philosophy underlying this initial step is that an accessory is constructed in a way that allows its material to speak for itself and age in its due course. During the design process, consideration is shown to the properties of the material in order to bring out the best in each product. This is evidenced in how the shape of a product takes form through the folding of the leather or by the ways in which parts are stitched together.
The details are also where CONTAINER sets itself apart from others, i.e. bespoke construction and lining, the result is comfy, sleek and contemporary. Due Suvisit Laohapongchana, CONTAINER’s Creative Director, perfectly combines forgotten craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic design.
The leathers used by CONTAINER come from Italy and other European tanneries, and are handpicked to always meet the requirements of the company, whereas the fabrics are sourced from various markets, including Japan. The materials are all assembled in an atelier in Bangkok and every single step in the process is made by one man. The leathers are hand cut and carefully sewn, and the edges are painted and polished by hand, following rare techniques that have been used by craftsmen for centuries.
