Fairtex was founded by Philip Wong, who practiced Muay Thai as a hobby. Fairtex became the #1 brand in Thailand and Mr. Wong wanted to give back to the Thailand community. This was realized when a Fairtex Muay Thai camp in rural Bangplee, 25km outside of Bangkok, was built. Fairtex was able to help young Thai men stay off the streets, stay off drugs and build a life through Muay Thai. Many of the innovations found in Fairtex's products are a result of testing products for decades in the Bangplee camp.
