Thai Silk

Thai silk is known throughout the world for its quality.  The production of Thai silk dates back over 700 years and it’s a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation.  The fabric has a distinctive sheen and texture that is different from other types of silk.

It is a perfect gift for someone special.  Its elegant and luxurious feel combined with vibrant colours and intricate patterns make it a great choice for any occasion.


Unique handmade jewelry is something truly special that can be gifted to a loved one. The tradition of handmade fine jewellery has existed in Thailand for centuries and is now spreading throughout Asia and the rest of the world.

Thailand has long been home to fine jewellery makers due to the ease of access to quality raw materials. High-quality stones like emeralds, rubies, and sapphires are found in the country and there is a long tradition of mining, cutting, polishing and trading stones. High-quality stones are also plentiful in the neighbouring countries of Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
