In Uncertain times one thing holds true
2022 & Sabai
The global pandemic of 2020 hit Sabai pretty hard. Not only were all our events and festivals canceled, but our owner, Natalie, was diagnosed with cancer in June of 2020. While she completed major surgery, radiation, & chemo, Sabai took a back seat and patiently waited for healing. 2021 has been a slow rebuild, putting health first. We are forever grateful for our patrons, your support, and are ready to adapt with the changing times!
2022 Natalie is returning to Thailand for healing and collaboration for new designs. She plans to continue to grow flowers, tend to her bees, and create fabulous floral art! Feel free to check out her creations on our Instagram page!
Our 1st event is the Cotton Tail Market on March 26th 9am-3pm at the Haywood County Fairgrounds. 78 Crabtree Rd. Waynesville NC
We hope to see y'all in the spring!
See the world through Sabai!
Sabai Sabai (pronounced Sa-Buy) is a common Thai phrase meaning "everything's good" or "not a care in the world." It is wellness almost beyond words, The Thai's heaven on earth. What better way to distinguish Sabai's mission. This name came to Natalie serendipitously during a batik class in Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2010.
At Sabai we strive to provide you with products that are culturally authentic, breathable, bright, unique, and innovative. We buy with purpose, integrity, heart, and to support those who need it most. Your purchases are not only supporting a small, local, female-owned, business owner, but you are also supporting artisans, and their families, around the world. These partnerships enrich many families & foster a healthy and caring relationship with Sabai.
Our Owner with Kuesende Tribe in Nepal
Nepal suffered great loses after the great earthquake of 2016. Sabai was moved to jump into action and raised money to help the tough hit Kuesende, in the epicenter of the quake. A year later we trekked to the small small village to hand deliver our donation. Thank you for donating to our causes. We ensure they go directly to the people and mission!
