Story behind PDM MAT
PDM Brand
“Instead of carpet with mat”
We have a Finnish friend who visited Thailand, she is the carpet expert. She wondered why Thai people do not usually cover the floor by carpet like the foreigners. I told her that... we do not usually use carpet due to a lot of dust; even we cannot decorate room with fabric sofa. She kept saying where should be covered with carpet.... When I brought her to offer monks robes in Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima Province), she had seen many mats covered the temple floor both red flowered pattern green mats or old-fashioned pattern yellow mats that Thai people prefer to use. She pointed at them and said “they’re carpets!” Do you believe that? I cannot sleep anymore since many “Rebuilt” old-fashioned mats project ideas ran into my mind all night long.... How did I miss that Thai valuable
There are carpets covering in the modern houses or condo- miniums in fact, carpet is not only used for beautiful and cozy decoration but also warm the users’ feet.... But Thailand is hot, humid and dusty so it is not proper for Thailand.... people might ask if they need the beautiful floor covering, which one should they use so the answer is “mat”, the appropriate object for hot country since it does not contain any dust and can be easily rolled and kept... but our familiar mat has many disadvantages such as fragile, easily-torn, not beautiful pattern and be old-fashioned to use...
As time goes by, we learn that mat is “hot country carpet” due to its properties: colorful, lively, non-dusty contain and easy to clean as well as it is the identity of Thai style which is the main factor of PDM BRAND to reuse it in Thai living with new identity.... Beautiful and durable
PDM BRAND is the first Thai mat developer. We redesign from material sorting to patterns design idea processes with old production to maintain its property to be proper with current residences as much as possible through the research and development from manufactories, material experts and designers.
PDM MAT has many outstanding properties like PP recycle plastic using to apply as the matte color to prevent the reflection light and maintain the room atmosphere. We apply UV Inhibiter to plastic so it can be used outdoor, cannot be fragile and colorless after a year using.
PDM mat is firmly weaved than regular mat about 30% so it can prevent the middle tearing and can be used both side. The most important is we renovate the pattern design by Thai and foreigner designers who have will to design and invent new pattern of mat.
