Handicrafts/Folk Arts

These crafts are plentiful through out Thailand. They include baskets, rattan, porcelain miniatures of animals and tea sets, soap, Celadon (ceramics), boxes of wood or lacquer ware, and fans of many sizes. These fans can be the size for holding in your hand, or very large for displaying on the wall. We have also found a nice quality resin product that is used to form statues, vases, boxes and other home décor.
