Bangkok Bounce to launch first Organic Island shop in Asia

November 11, 2013 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email
Bangkok Bounce Co., Ltd., a retailer of hand-made organic cotton gifts and souvenirs, has announced the launch of its Organic Island shop at All Season Place, Wireless Road, Bangkok.
Organic Island LaunchThe outlet, which brings the local shopping experience right up to date, combining tailored production with niche marketing and multimedia production, specialises in hand-knitted animals bursting with character and targets tourists and general gift-givers.
The opening of this Organic Island shop, the first one anywhere in the world, comes as the next step in a story that saw British knitwear manufacturer ChunkiChilli Knitwear Ltd establish itself with a unique position in the Chinese travel market, building a distribution network through high-end retailers around China, particularly through hotels including the Banyan Tree, Regent, JW Marriott, Le Meridien, Marriott, Sheraton, Ritz Carlton, Pullman, Holiday Inn and Novotel.
ChunkiChilli, which sells exclusively through the internet, adopted the Organic Island brand for Asia, to represent a new retail concept targeting tourist customers, with products in each outlet tailored to reflect the local culture and traditions. The Bangkok shop stocks many items available exclusively in Thailand, including animals in Thai style clothing and kickboxing elephants.

Bangkok was the obvious choice as the first venue for a branded shop because of its position as the world’s top tourist city, and because Organic Island has already established a strong niche selling to Chinese tourists, who now account for a large proportion of the tourist visitors to Bangkok.
Through its use of the internet and multimedia, Organic Island also brings new and exciting things to the Thai gift market. The shop is the brainchild of Oxford-educated entrepreneur, Tim Wilson, whose background is in journalism, PR, photography and filmmaking, and China-born designer, Misty Zhang Lan. They are a husband and wife team.

Tim Wilson, owner of Bangkok Bounce Co., Ltd. said, “My wife and I created the Organic Island brand specifically for Asia, intending it as a localised brand with local styles and costumes available only in one particular country. There is a tropical range, a traditional Chinese range, and a Thai range available only in Organic Island Launch_4Thailand.”
“The range of animal-head golf club covers has become a run-away sensation in South Korea, and our range of pom-pom golf club covers has been popular in the UK for many years. We are expecting both of these ranges to go down well in golf-mad Thailand,” Tim added.
Organic Island at All Seasons Place is located on the second floor of the retail centre. The second store will be launched early next year at the new Central Festival, Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui.
Bangkok Bounce is also the official distributor of Waboba Ball, the ball that bounces on water. For more information, please call 02-655-8290 or visit below links for purchasing online.
