Loyfar is a premier Thai brand of artisan pewterware, founded in 1999.
We are Loyfar Ltd, UK, a sister company of the Loyfar Collection Company Ltd, Thailand, who design and skilfully craft by hand the beautiful pewter products we sell.
Mr Loyfar, the founder, principle designer and owner of Loyfar (Thailand). Mr Loyfar originally trained and worked as a jewellery designer in Paris, France. It is this background which heavily influences the Loyfar brand. Indeed, some of the more decorative items can be considered as big jewellery for your home!
Loyfar (pronounced loy-far) is a Thai word meaning to float high in the air. The name was bestowed on a family ancestor, a trapeze artist who performed in a circus, by a member of the Thai royal family who was so thrilled by his gravity-defying acrobatic feats.
Inspired by Nature
Loyfar artisan pewter is inspired by the beauty and wonder of plants and creatures, combining creative design with high quality craftsmanship. The products are unique, quirky and often amusing capturing the Thai spirit of fun. All items are lovingly handmade by skilled artisans passionate about their craft.
One of the many early stages of creating a new product is to skilfully carve by hand, using only basic tools, a “master” from wax (see here for the finished item).
Award Winning Quality & Practices
Loyfar products are made in a clean and modern working environment at the Loyfar (Thailand) workshop, situated in the mountainous northern region of Chiang Mai.
In recognition of the company’s high quality products and good working practices, Loyfar (Thailand) has been awarded the prestigious Thailand Trust Mark, by the Royal Thai Government, Department of International Trade Promotion.
The 'T Mark' is a symbol of world-class excellence, providing an assurance of trusted quality, fair labour, environmental concern and social responsibility (see here for more information).
