Pride Works also participated in BIG+BIH 2013, one of Thailand’s biggest gift and houseware trade exhibitions within the region and from then onwards, started our first distribution network within South East Asia, having supplied to retailers and some hotel projects in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia and Hong Kong as well. Gradually, more Japanaese products were added into our company’s inventory list as the network of manufacturers and designers grew.
Travelling has always been an essential part of Pride’s growth. Wherever we go, we’re sure to discover new things with regards to design and art, and getting to know people in the industry has been one of the best privileges of being in thie trade.
Meeting the creative minds behind the products and the manufacturers has fuelled us with vast knowledge of why they do what they do and how they do it with pride and passion, It is a complicated process and by getting to understand the rationale shared among one another, we can pass on the story to the people who will use them. Such is our joy...
