Where Fairytales come true…

The Iron Fairies bars are inspired by the same name children fairytale book which are written by Ashley Sutton. He also designed the Bars

“You’d be underground for so long, you’d just about lose your mind. I started thinking about fairies. Then I started doing some sketches.”

The Iron Fairies is a Ashley Sutton owned franchise brand for bar and merchandise retail. Currently there are branches in Bangkok, Tokyo and the latest being set up in Hong Kong . The Iron Fairies bars are inspired by the same name children fairytale book (The Iron Fairies Vol.1 – Vol. 3) which are written by Ashley Sutton himself. Both the fairytale book and the bar in Bangkok have their own story to tell and marks the beginning of Ashley Sutton’s design and food and beverage concepts.

The fairytale book originate from Ashley’s days underground in Western Australia’s mines. Deep in the iron-ore mine in order to battle the boredom of his bleak working environment Ashley started to dream up and draw the story of a group of miners forge iron fairies who come to life only when exposed to the morning sun rays, but are destined to turn to rust unless protected by the magic fairy dust. His drawings were discovered by a production manager who encourage him to publish it as a book.
