 Our work is a delicate art that requires sophisticated and detailed skills. With our dedications and processes, this series is hardly produced in high volume. Thanks everyone for your support, you can be assured that you will get high quality bags with once-in-a-lifetime price.

Our FORREST has won Vogue who’s on next 2017 (Thailand) with this collection. 

You can watch the entire program here. (only FORREST part)

 "Every piece is an art from nature that has only one in the world."

 We have selected three materials to represent three types of nature. Each one has different characteristics just like human. Some people are lively like leaves hanging from a tree, some are simply classy like wood, and someone are elegant like stone. So, for our first collection, we have been inspired by these three materials to represent each type of nature.

 We have researched and developed real leaves with scientific methods to preserve, combine, and splash proof finish, so the leaves will be long-lasting with great touch. Bauhinia Aureifolia is the name of the Thai leaf that we've selected. It has a great detailed texture with various shades of color.

  Our wood has been developed to increase elasticity and flexibility as it needs to be sewn together with fabric and leather without any cracking, and can bend without leaving any traces. Rose wood is in our selection as it has a great variety of colors and unique patterns.

 Stone is quite challenging as it needs to be thin and flexible, but still leave the rough and uneven texture of the stone. So, we use the finishing technique that can retain its attributes as much as possible. The Silver stone is unique in its little sparkle and rough texture.

With tons of prototyping over the past two years, we have designed the one and only bag that has natural materials and distinctive design.

We use high grade European full grain leather. You can only see this quality of leather in the top luxury brands. All of them are non-pigment colors (tanning technique), so you will feel the most natural leather out of it. However, some scars and loose skin will be shown.
The leather in this collection has different textures to match each natural material:  

• For Leaf, it has a mild touch and clear texture.  

• For Wood, it's soft, smooth, and has a detailed texture.  

• For Stone, it's rough and has a strong texture.

 Yes, we have non leather as an option on our survey that you can select after the end of this campaign. We use micro fiber instead of leather. It's similar to leather in term of appearance, but it will have no scar and no loose skin. However, the durability of it is lower than leather.    

All the bag parts are especially designed only for this collection as we believe that this is the best and only way to display the design of nature and its quality.

Our manufacturing partner has been a professional in the luxury bag industry for more than 40 years in Thailand. So, you can be assured that your bag will be crafted with the best quality.

We have designed an extra slot for small items in the flap, and some slots inside the main compartment. So, you can manage and allocate your belongings.

Every bag comes with its own serial number to guarantee of its authenticity and quality.

• Mini Backpack - The smallest bag comes in iPad Air or textbook size that can fit all your small everyday belongings with style.  

• Shoulder Bag - Our medium size bag comes in 13" laptop or document size. The shoulder bag suits working men and women who know great design.  

• Backpack - Our biggest bag comes in backpack size that can fit everything with eye-catching design.

You will receive a survey to specify the leaf, wood, or stone later.  

Shipping will be charged after the campaign in the post-campaign survey.

Every FORREST item you've purchased, we use 1% of it for a campaign to help and support nature. We don't donate to any organizations as we want to do this by ourselves. We believe that this way will make a great contribution, and more importantly it's fun to take part in the real environment. It could be anything that supports nature not only planting trees. You can see our previous activity by following this link. 

  
We are a natural fashion brand that brings many natural materials such as leaf, wood, and stone etc. to our products by utilizing special techniques for each one. Our products mix ultra modern design with nature. Then we seamlessly blend them together so that our users can sense the beauty of nature in every piece of FORREST.

Risks and challenges

We are new in the Kickstarter community, but our company has almost five years of experience in the design, fashion, and manufacturing business. Our bags are quite new and complicated to manufacture which can cause unexpected situations, so we've anticipated and planned for the potential risks and developed a solid plan for production and delivery.
We've spent two years on this project, so we've prepared all the manufacturing processes and worked with all professional partners for a long time. However, if any unexpected events happen I promise to inform all of you both during and after the campaign.
Finally, thanks for your support!! We hope our bags will be a part of your nature and the Kickstarter community!! :)
