FRA/ENG The model POKATI and TAMADA was created in Bangkok within the cabinet(office) of design Osisu de Singh Intrachooto. They are hand-made in Thailand from recycled materials (mainly of the polyethylene and the cuts of Japanese magazines. GALLERY
By the way, you know what it means « Pokati » in Thai? Well, that means « normal ». Another word, close to « Pokati » in Thai: « Tamada », who means also « normal » but as « ordinary ». « Pokati » and « Tamada », two « very favorite » models taken from the Osisu collection “Bags”.
Two handbags stemming from the normal world, from the ordinary, transformed in bright objects of desire by the grace of the ecodesign.
As is customary in Thailand, « Pokati » and « Tamada » have right for diminutives (although this custom applies more to the people than to the bags). « Pok » for « Pokati ». Easy to remember it: « Pok » as » pocket « , because « Pok » has a dress handkerchief zipped in front of.
« Tam » for « Tamada ». Even simpler to remember it : when it is not « Pok » with its dress handkerchief zipped in front of, it is thus « Tam », without dress handkerchief, smaller, more square, but with its fine handles and its lock with leg-button pressure.
Why I love them these both ? Because they are beautiful. Hum! No, it is not an argument, I grant you that. Too subjective. Then, because they are « design ». Yes, there, it is certain, they come from the cabinet Osisu created by Singh Intrachooto. They are the fruit of a team of experienced creators. But still ? These handbags are practical. Quite true! Thanks to their cover in polyethylene (at the same time thick and flexible), they are not easily damaged. Finally, every handbag is unique.
It is an obvious fact : their motives result from a meticulous assembly (necessarily by hand) of strips of magazines or newspapers. Japanese speakers can easily recognized on these cuts of written press kanjis and kanas of the Japanese writing which confer on bags this side … in Japanese mood !
It is a choice. Especially as the Japanese magazines are abundant in Thailand (and furthermore « Pokati » and « Tamada », that sounds a little Japanese, right ?). But that can also work with the Indian, Russian, Peruvian or French newspapers.
Yeah, and speaking of which, here is an idea amongst others so that your favorite magazines reach a second life, isn’t it ? Downright Buddhist. And so Thai. From the human life cycle to the life cycle of materials, there is only one step, one imprint, one label. Osisu.
