Bangkok International Trade Fairs 2011 : Housewares, Leather, Gifts, Fashion

This past weekend, The Bangkok International Fashion Fair and Bangkok International Leather Fair BIFF & BIL 2011 ran concurrently at the massive Impact venue at Muang Thong Thani 30 minutes from downtown.
Bangkok International Gift Fair and Bangkok International Houseware Fair BIG & BIH 2011 also showcased textiles and design among many other products from toys to stationary.
I attended to see and purchase wares from Thai designers, as well as textile and leather manufacturers from Southeast Asia and Japan.
As part of ASEAN integration the international trade fairs promoted ways that Southeast Asia's diverse countries can collaborate in their creative industries too. See also the TIFF 2011 , or Thailand International Furniture Fair for designs with the theme "Finding Green Piece."
