Co-creation Designer Retreat

Connect with self. Connect with nature. Connect with community. Co-create a unique capsule collection.

Think you might create something unique if you undergo a process of connection with self, alongside remote artisans, deep in the Jungle? We do! That’s why we have ‘Co-creation Designer Retreats’ in northern Thailand.

Join our mission of changing the global narrative surrounding refugees to one of connection, worthiness and abundance. We work alongside remote refugee communities to co-create sustainable businesses. We invite designers to be a part of this new story.

Akamae brings together a group of designers and our artisan partners to connect, collaborate and produce.

Co-creation begins with an inward journey of connection with self, with nature and with all. Join us in;

  • Meditation

  • Jungle exploration

  • Thought activities and discussions

  • Cultural connection

Experience facilitated Co-creation Fashion Design workshops. A space where creative energy, traditional skills, design, wisdom and culture are flowing and authentic relationships are built.

Fully immerse yourself in the experience of co-creation while we capture photo and video content.

At the end of the journey, we remain connected as we follow through with production, quality assurance and shipment of your products. You will become an Akamae partner;

  • Be seen on all of our channels, including a full page on our website featuring the story and products

  • Be connected to our partners

  • And have a branded ‘StoryBook’ of the co-creation and capsule collection to use for outreach

Our 8 day Jungle retreats include;

  • All accommodation

  • All meals

  • All transport

  • All facilitation, interpretation and cultural immersion

  • All prototyping costs (materials and labor of artisans)

  • Photos, videos and finalized ‘StoryBook’

By sharing themselves, their stories and traditional skills, Akamae artisans are empowering you with a choice when it comes to creating your products and becoming a part of a story that you can be proud to wear and share.
