Discover Thai arts and crafts Thailand

The Thai artisanal industry goes back several centuries. Its wealth is such that today examples of it can be found in many countries. However, it doesn't feel as authentic to buy it somewhere other than in Thailand. Moreover, purchasing it on the spot is much less expensive. The traditional colourful fabrics vary according to the region you are in. Among other things, the Thai people make sarongs for men and patungs for women (a traditional skirt tied at the waist). Don't pass up the opportunity to buy some silk, which is sold at some fantastic prices. You will also find a whole range of accessories, like handbags and costume jewellery. Precious stones are also very popular. That't not to mention the decorated ceramics, which are very trendy, as well as all types of wickerwork: baskets, hats, furniture, etc. Keep in mind that this list is far from exhaustive.
