Yan Liphao basketry
Yan Liphao basketry is another famous product of the South, particularly
in Nakhon Si Thammarat where people have been making it for over 100
years. Yan Liphao is a climbing plant that grows in damp places. It
likes to exist among other plants. The trunk is very tough and durable,
so locals found a way to make good use of it by making household goods
such as handbags, tobacco boxes, tea utensils, etc. Some pieces are
encased in silver alloy, gold alloy or gold. It takes around 10 days
to a month to make one item, depending on the details of the design.
The major Yan Liphao production spots are Ban Mon, Tambon Tha Rua
and Ban Na Khian, Tambon Na Khian, both in Amphoe Mueang, and families
in Fort Vajiravudh.
