Our Story

Baan LeQua was born from a desire to share beautiful handmade products from South East Asia with the world, whilst keeping alive the art of traditional hand looming and supporting local communities.

Whilst many people have been to Asia and purchased "bargain" silks & cotton products, shoes & handbags from the numerous markets, few have seen the true beauty of exquisite hand made shoes & handbags, hand dyed & handwoven silks & cottons that we are selectively source direct from everyday people who love what they do, Artisans in their own right.

Baan LeQua is committed to supporting locals & communities keeping alive the art of handweaving & dyeing in rural & regional area's of countries like Thailand, where many families and communities rely on Silk & Cotton to survive or supplement incomes.

We believe in only sourcing ethically produced, high quality handmade products and giving back to the communities to support those who depend on these trades. From time to time, we will source additional products from companies that align with our values, and that assist us to help the regional artisans to produce exquisite works of art.

Our current partners & suppliers are all Thai, producers of high quality products, with no middle man, we aim to give our customers the best value for money, and an authentic product than can be passed down through generations when treated with the same love and care that goes into producing your exclusive product.

We do not sell low end mass produced products mass produced in sweat shops, and do not wish to be confused with such, our product is all premium quality and often has had many hours of labour in preparation, dyeing and weaving. We look forward offering you a rewarding experience when you purchase one of our products, and guarantee you will not be disappointed with your purchase.
