STUFF WITH A SENSE OF PLACE
of the local
In decades of tracking down the best bowl of noodles in Penang or a hyper-regional curry in Phuket, we’ve come across lots of unique ingredients, cooking tools and kitchen workwear.
Stuff like cloth from a family of indigo dyers in Phrae, the only knife a northern Thai villager will reach for when mincing buffalo meat, or batik from Thailand’s south – products that could really only be made in the places where they’re made. Much of this stuff is pretty much perfect, and we simply want to bring it to you, as-is.
In other cases, we’ve adapted or reimagined items, making subtle tweaks that don’t obscure their unique origins. And sometimes we also design custom items that express the spirit of a place.
For all of these outstanding goods, OMG is our version of the local wet market.
At OMG, we purchase and commission goods directly from locally-based artisans, makers and producers wherever possible. Stay tuned to our Instagram or Facebook feeds to see what’s in the online market now and what’s on the horizon.
