Introducing the latest products of Thai creators who have reinterpreted local industries and sublimated them into their designs.

Fab Meetup Kyoto”, a meetup to share “making”, is showcasing Thai crafts with FabCafe Bangkok! In this online event, we will introduce the latest designs by Thai creators. Influenced by the various restrictions on movement and activities caused by the Corona pandemic, Thai creators have sought new inspiration and originality in “local potential” and created unique products by reinterpreting traditional materials and techniques. Don’t miss this cutting-edge trend of 2022, which has yet to be covered by the news media in Japan.

This event will be held as a satellite program of “DESIGN WEEK KYOTO 2022” to be held in February 2022, with the aim of exchanging knowledge and ideas about “local cultural industries”.

(This event will be held in English, with no interpretation provided. A report in Japanese will be released at a later date.)
