Announcement   We are very sad to announce that our master shoemaker has been ill for quite a while now. He is spending most of his time in the hospital. Our hearts are with him and his family. He was the Ajarn, (the teacher) to many apprentices over the years. We have found no one who can compare to his meticulous attention to detail and quaity. So it is with a heavy heart that we have had to make the very hard decision to discontinue our footwear line.
We are doing a final clearance sale on all shoes, boots and sandals for men, women & kids.
Styles & sizes are limited. This is it folks, browse the shop to find your last pairs of handmade vegan shoes from Siamese Dream Design.

About

Textile junkies with a passion for keeping culture alive.

Siamese Dream Design is a northern Thailand cooperative that began with a mother/daughter duo and their love affair with Southeast Asian textile.
Today Siamese Dream works directly with remote indigenous groups in the mountains of northern Thailand, in the preservation of traditional fabric-making techniques, and effectively provides a fair, livable wage in the process, thus helping to sustain these ancient ways of life. The team also ventures to neighboring countries seeking master weavers, embroiderers, and batik artists, gathering knowledge and textiles along the way. Currently Siamese Dream incorporates ethnic textiles from Burma, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, and Sri Lanka into their product lines.
