From elegant celadon and pottery works to locally-made Lanna textiles, herbal and food products, paintings, kitchenware and contemporary Thai-style wallpaper, and much more, the products reflect the best of Northern Thai culture, arts and heritage.
Superbly designed and elegantly crafted, the exhibits are accompanied in several instances by the artisans offering live demonstrations of their work.
All the products are sourced from local organisations such as the Royal Projects, community based tourism and social welfare groups such as the Ageing Society Rehabilitation programme and the Support Arts and Crafts International Centre of Thailand.
Many of the products are being snapped up by the buyers to take back home.
Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said, “We are very pleased to see this display proving to be so popular. These products reflect our commitment to ensure that the benefits of tourism trickle down to the very grassroots of society.”
