  • Cotton Runner/Shawl

    Completely handmade, this lovely cotton runner (or shawl) exhibits the subtleties of handspun fibers, natural dyes and handweaving. Colors are derived from roots, berries and leaves which yield soft versions of black, blue, taupe and cream done in a special, patterned weave with ikat down the center- note the use of blue in this section. It’s difficult to capture the subtlety of the colors and weaving in a photograph; these pieces are much more beautiful in reality. This piece would be especially attractive on a table.

    Quantities are very limited; this is the only piece available.

    Hand or machine washable in cold water; air dry to avoid shrinkage. Dry cleaning for large pieces is advisable.

  • Placemats – Set of 4-Black, White & Grey

    Handwoven at Ban Rai Pai Ngam, the famous weaving cooperative, these attractive all-cotton placemats exhibit the subtleties of natural dyes and handweaving.

This is the only set available. (Please spot clean or handwash gently and line dry.)

  • Silver Crab Box – Large

    Exquisitely rendered in silver, this charming small crab box is a very fine example of Cambodian silver work. The legs and claws are articulated, as are the eyes. The plate on the abdomen opens up to reveal a small cavity for tiny treasures, and even has a latch. It is very realistic and would be a special addition to any collection of fine silver. We think this is 90% or higher silver; the weight is 44.5 grams. (Also see FCO136 for an even smaller one.)

  • Thai Spirit House

    Nicely proportioned and beautifully ornamented and finished, this newly made spirit house is created by master craftsmen in the temple ‘vihaan’ style. An antiqued gold color is enhanced by raised floral motifs and lots of small, cut-to-fit mirrors in different colors; dark red paint colors the interior and the stairway and adds to the richness. ‘Chofa’ finials grace the ridge ends and abstracted nagas finish the gable ends. The interior comprises three rooms, and the rear outer wall is also nicely decorated. This one is more detailed, larger and better made than most similar designs seen on Ebay and elsewhere online. (Please note that the roofs are ornamented with dark blue or green mirrors; if you have a preference, please specify.) We don’t recommend using this one outdoors.
