We recently engaged local Chiang Mai photographer Phudinan Singkhamfu to take some lifestyle shots for us using one of Chiang Mai's many beautiful coffee houses as a backdrop. The coffee/cafe culture has really taken off in Chiang Mai since the late 1990's. When I first visited in 1998 "real coffee" options were limited and the norm was a cup of instant accompanied by a suspicious white powder (otherwise known as "coffee mate"). Of recent times hundreds of small coffee houses have sprung up all over the city and while the quality of a brew varies, most are characterised by great design, including leafy tropical planting, and distinctive Lanna style furniture and decoration. Really, some of these places are pleasant little oases, and make an ideal place to escape from the dust and heat that permeates through the city.
The images from the shoot feature some of our newer products such as the RC Clutch Wallet and the Recycled Rubber Cross Body Purse. We were really happy with results, we hope you like them too!
