Our handbag collection and the UNESCO Seal of Excellence
What is the UNESCO Seal of Excellence Award ?
We have been awarded by the UNESCO with the Seal of Excellence Award for our handbag and accessory range.
The Award serves as a quality-control mechanism and as a marketing device that guarantees the quality of handmade, traditional and innovative craft products from the region.
The Award is therefore not an award given for the most outstanding piece, but a ‘stamp of approval’ which certifies that a handicraft product or product line meets the highest standards of quality and has been produced with careful regard to cultural authenticity and environmental conservation.
The goals of the UNESCO Bangkok awarding our handbag and fashion accessory Portfolio:
Since 1961, UNESCO Bangkok, the Asia-Pacific Regional Bureau for Education and Cluster Office for the six “Mekong” countries, Thailand, Myanmar, Lao PDR, and Singapore, and indirectly through UNESCO country Offices in Hanoi and Phnom Penh, promotes peace and human development through education, sciences, culture, communication and information.
The Asia-Pacific region counts for almost two thirds of the world’s population and gathers countries of great diversity in economic, religious, political and cultural terms. This diversity, along with globalization and the dynamism and rapid evolution of the region bear great challenges for Governments and societies. Closely with Governments, National Commissions and other governmental and non-governmental partners, UNESCO Bangkok works on making development sustainable and profitable for everyone in a culture of peace and human rights.
In the spirit of One UN and as part of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Thailand, UNESCO Bangkok works in synergy with the United Nations Sister Agencies for achieving the United Nations Millennium Goals in the Asia-Pacific.
