Our Story : The Soi 55 Lifestyle
This is the view from the
apartment where it all began
on the busy street
'Sukhumvit Soi 55' in Bangkok...
I started Soi 55 just over two years ago whilst on a 'happiness mission' in Indonesia and Thailand. My passion for travel over the last 10 years has taken me to remote beaches, bustling cities and magical markets.
I followed my dreams and finally aligned my desire to keep traveling with running my own business to create the beach and travel lifestyle I have always longed to be a part of.
After setting up the business on the road Soi 55 spent its first year of trading in beautiful Cornwall before moving to the sunnier coastline of the Algarve in Portugal where we are now based.
Endlessly inspired by the far-flung beaches of the tropics, the Portuguese blue skies and the excitement of the undiscovered. We find, design and create colourful, easy-to-wear bags + accessories which complement the travel lifestyle. Be it the beach or the city, travel is our passion and our products will always reflect this.
Many of our collections are beautifully handmade by artisans around the globe using traditional or special techniques and are uniquely designed especially for Soi 55. We embrace the language barriers, cultural curiosities and arduous shipping methods because it has made us who we are today.
As we dive deeper into the 'Soi 55 lifestyle' we invite you to grab a beach bag and join us on our never ending journey around the world.
Big love and palm trees always, Candy x
