I never looked for online shops in Bangkok, until I got pregnant in this hot and humid city. All of a sudden strolling around and trying on stuff wasn’t that appealing anymore. Similarly, when Cleo was born, going shopping was not straightforward here. Unless you live within walking distance of a mall, it can be tricky to take your baby shopping in Bangkok. You can easily get stuck in traffic, you need an airconditioned place, and your baby might simply not enjoy it as much as you do. So… thank god for online shopping!
Because there’s such an overwhelming choice of online shops in Bangkok, I’ve listed my 10 favorites in this post. As a side note, almost every shop I know has an online sales option – most small designers don’t have a physical shop, but they sell their items directly through their social media pages. You can browse through my blog and check them out!
In this blogpost, however, I focus on designers with a webshop or an Etsy shop. Without further ado: here are my 10 favorite online shops in Bangkok! (All of these ship internationally by the way!)
My top 10 online shops in Bangkok
1. Lamka Artisan Store
Alright, I might be a little biased on this one – Lamka is the multi brand store I launched myself in cooperation with local artisans! I wanted to offer a worldwide platform for the beautiful items I discover here in my new home country.
You’ll find three categories of products on Lamka Artisan Store: jewelry, home decor and baby/kids items. All are handmade by local craftspeople and every purchase supports them directly. Gift cards are available too. And we ship our artisan goodies worldwide!
2. Dancing Riot
If clothing is what you’re looking for, have a look at Dancing Riot. It is one of the first shops I discovered in Bangkok and it was love at first sight! Designer Jay has an amazing eye for style. Have fun shopping at her web shop!
Another bohemian inspired Etsy shop from Thailand! Mai makes beautiful macramé bags, accessories and home deco. I have one of her bags, which goes with literally every outfit, and one of her wall hangers is in Cleo’s nursery. Have a look for yourself!
5. Hamburger Studio
You’ll never be out of style with Hamburger Studio! This brand is a bit more outgoing, with bold prints and colors. They have pieces for every occasion, from casual t-shirts and dresses to more formal blazers and jumpsuits.
Borboleta is THE shop to get the handbag of your dreams! The founder, Veronica from Bangkok, designs each bag with the modern woman-on-the-go in mind. Her handbags are made from high quality and vegan leather. I love their practical design with many compartments. You can choose from a range of colors, and your purchase supports Thai children in need!
Pomelo is a bigger online shop with a wide variety of on-trend clothing and accessories. They recently launched a sustainable collection, “Purpose by Pomelo”. You can choose to have your order home-delivered or to pick it up at a store nearby, where you can try everything on and only pay for what you take home (note: this last option is currently unavailable due to covid-19).
8. Headman Studio
If you’re looking for handmade jewelry that you can wear every day, have a look at Headman Studio. Thai couple Prin and Tar make cute nature-inspired pieces, as well as customized orders. I also love their jewelry with Thai words, which makes an original gift!
I can guarantee that this shop will brighten your day! Usathip has a gorgeous Etsy shop with boots, sneakers and slippers. They are made by local artisans and inspired by traditional Thai handicrafts. I have a pair of their floral sneakers and they truly brighten my day every time I wear them!
10. Bangkok Soap Opera
Last but not least, I’d love to introduce you to this natural skincare shop. When I got pregnant with Cleo, I started looking into my cosmetics and only then realised how many chemicals they contain! Bangkok Soap Opera is my go-to shop for natural skincare – my favorites are their wide range of soaps, the moisturising face cream and their deliciously smelling body oils. They also organise workshops to learn how to make your own soaps, candles and others!
