Founded by Philip Huang and Chomwan Weeraworawit in 2016, Philip Huang creates contemporary clothing and accessories, emphasizing handcrafted artisanal workwear and transitional clothing for all occasions. Collaborating with artisans in the Northeast of Thailand who specialize in natural dying techniques and handcrafted textiles, the brand is committed to bringing artisanal knowledge to the forefront. Sustainability is built into the core of the brand by working with natural dyes and fibers, collaborating with diverse communities, and exploring pathways for future applications of traditional artisanry.
A commitment to sustainability is at the core of our business, centered around the preservation of craft in communities we work with such as the “Indigo Grandmas” of Sakon Nakhon whose knowledge of deriving natural dye from indigo plants and other natural materials such as red clay and pradu (rosewood) has been passed on for many generations.
Our design philosophy is to hero traditional and ecological fabrics and natural dyes of the highest quality possible in capsule collections, evolving seasonally with the introduction of new dyes and patterns, reducing textile waste associated with traditional fashion cycles.
In our labs in Brooklyn and Bangkok we experiment to refine and discover new techniques through constant dialogue and collaboration with dyers and weavers and also sharing of the knowledge globally in digital and physical workshops.
