One of TIMO’s ‘Selected’ neighbors on the third floor of Siam Center is leather goods label Container. Founded in 2010 by three friends including Kanit Tantiwong, an architect by trade, the brand prides itself on producing premium men’s accessories that are classic and timeless. Using an array of different materials – including vegetable-tanned leather, specially treated denim and coated canvas – the intricacy of the products also lies in the finer details, such as stitching and lining.
“It’s funny because I don’t really advertise myself as a brand owned by an architect,” Kanit says. “But somehow it’s attracting customers from the design profession.” Besides valuing the fine craftsmanship of the accessories, another reason may be that Container’s high-end wallets, bags and luggage are relatively affordable compared to internationally-branded luxury goods. Shoppers in Singapore and Indonesia will be happy to know that Container is stocked by Metro at The Centrepoint on Orchard Road and Grand Central Indonesia department store in Jakarta.
