A passion project of founder and designer Boontavee “Boon” Charoenpoonsiri, Torboon embraces every stage of the bag-making process–from weaving the base fabric, to selecting the finest leather details and above all, for a carefully crafted and enduring design. After deciding on a career change, Boon went to Italy where she spent two years learning the art of bag making in Florence and Milan. Returning home with new skills in tow, she found further inspiration in the local culture of textile weaving, thereby creating a marriage of Thai heritage and Italian craftsmanship. Her contemporary range has expanded to include women’s shoes, unisex hats and a men’s bag line. She’s currently experimenting with incorporating neon thread into her latest collection.
