Local Products
The Woven Materials of Nan are distinctively different in terms of designs and production method from other localities. The most famous pattern is the Lai Nam Lai which resembles waves or stairs. Other designs also reflect the local artistic and creative skills. The materials are used for making dresses and Tung, a type of pennant used in religious rites, or colorful satchels. Such products are widely available in town or production centers in rural villages, particularly at Ban Nong Bua in Tha Wang Pha district.
Nan is also noted for making musical instruments which include the Saloh, a violin-like intrument, ans the Sung, similar to a guitar. They are used in bands which can still be heard in certain restaurants
In additions, silverware, wood carving, and hilltribe handicraft are quite popular with tourists. The leading agricultural produce is the Som Si Thong (golden oranges) which are of the same species as Som Kwiew Wan of the Central Plain. Because of climatic differences, the local version is golden-skinned and more aromatic. They are in season in December.
