A quick exploration of Bangkok’s popular markets will introduce yourself to a myriad of Thai handicrafts. These beautiful products are works of art in themselves and are painstakingly handcrafted by local artisans. You can choose from triangle cushions, wicker baskets, pottery dishes, lacquerware, or wooden carvings.
If you want to breath new life into your living room with a touch of Thai, then Thai handcrafted cushions are just the right things. Instead of buying stuffed cushions, you can go for the uniquely designed covers and stuff them yourself when you get home.
Check your country’s customs regulations before making a purchase. Make sure that the natural fibers used in your wanted souvenir items are accepted at the customs.
