While surfing around with flickr, we have found this very nice tree collection gathered by namolio who gave her favorite to one of our works, Here Lines The Standing Lives. Wow! We feel soooOooo great to know that it is one of her inspirations! Thanks a million, namolio. You've just made our day! Your photos are our inspiration, too! :-)
It's been such a long long time to get back to our blog and write again. We're about too busy doing this and that. In fact, we gotta truly confess that "too busy" is like a word of excuse. We always have time to do what we really like. So far we have done so many things in our studio but writing story is happened to be one of the hardest things for us to keep it going. We are way too slow on this process but we want to try harder to keep our blog staying fresh and alive as much as possible! :-)
Alright, let's get back to our last post about our wall-hanging art, it's still keeping us busy until now. Some of them are going on the way and some are finished, framed and ready to hang. However, we gotta skip telling more detail on this since we eagerly want to boast about our most excitement first, our fabbiz shop.
We have started off opening our brand new shop with Etsy.com and tried to market our handcrafted products to the world. We're so much excited to see 'em online and get such a nice feedback and warm welcome from many Etsy members. Some very nice people have picked our work as their favorites and treasuries which brought lots of traffic to us. We gotta thanks to all of them, especially Jenifer Glagowski & mamasita and many thanks to all secret admirers, too! Additionally, we're so thrilled to know that our works are blogged at One Part Whimsy on Apr 3.08 by Tara (The Fat Cat) and Creativadoration on Apr 11.08 by Janick (Neawear). We can't thank enough for their nice words and supports. Please forgive us if we'd miss to mention anyone here.
Besides, we have uploaded our photos and vdo clips to flickr. It's not just showing our work stuffs but travel and something else also. Here, it seems to be one of our favorites (surely after our shop:-) where we keep spending time most these days. Yeah! Uploading photos is always easier than writing posts, we reckon. :-)
We are now working on wall hanging arts. We are so happy to pick up what we have left off since we left school and swirl around in the publication and commercial business. Almost forget what we dream for... It’s such a peaceful feeling to work on what we love. We feel so relieves. The project helps sweeping away all the exhausted we have from the long day...
We dropped off our name cards and joined this event called "Name Card Festival" at TCDC. It was fun from the start...at the time we sketched, discussed, bought materials and proceeded to our hand-made production under limited time. The whole process took us about 1 week for our first lot of 500 pcs, 300 pcs to TCDC and 200 pcs for ourselves. But just 1 day after the opening day, TCDC called us and asked for more cards as they run out so fast. We're glad to hear such a nice feedback and decided to send out all we have left. We hope that we would have a great connection back from others who collected our cards. Let us hear back from you, guys!
For our card design idea and behind-the-scene production, we wanted to use recycled card stock paper for eco-friendly material concern. Also, we thought that it somehow represented a craft and hand-made-work look. We punched 2 small square on top & bottom to lock 2 yarns in place. Green and brown yarns were tied up together. These 2 colors were from our logo colors and represented our friendship and combination and the material itself represented textile and flexibility. Our logo, graphic and info were printed out on matted sticker to make it stood out from the card stock paper. We also have 2 colors version, both green and brown stickers.

- fabbiz is a compact and casual design studio where 2 closed friends, Foo – a graphic designer and Bim – a textile designer, are working together. We are 100% Thai, living in Bangkok who had experienced one chapter of our lives living in the US. We both are graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA. After working in the design industry in the US for quite sometime, we decided to move back to our homeland with a big dream to start doing something on our own. Since then our studio has been taking shape bit by bit everyday with love and warm support from family and friends. We are very into home decorative & handmade products and love to wander around the 'hood finding new inspiration and materials for our work.
