When shopping in ChiangMai, one must consider the many
handicrafts that are part of the city’s history. Made with workmanship
skills that have been passed down from generation to generation, these
beautiful crafts are a good representation of ChiangMai’s proud Lanna
heritage. Umbrellas made of sa paper, hilltribe crafts with
bold colors, fabrics of countless types, delicate ceramics (celadons),
replicated and genuine antiques, dazzling jewelry and gems,
silverware of all sorts, lacquers with intricate designs,
rattan and wickerwork, and woodcarvings ranging from pictures to
furniture are only a part of the long list of crafts and arts that help
to make ChiangMai so special. Each individual piece of workmanship requires
painstaking attention to detail and design in the process of its creation.
Owning one of ChiangMai’s traditional crafts is a sure way to take back

HANDICRAFTS - BORSANG AND SANKAMPAENG AREA
(Highway 1006) The largest and most popular of the local handicraft factories are
situated along a 13 km stretch of the ChiangMai - Sankampaeng Road.
Both sides of the road are lined with factories and showrooms which give
you the opportunity to both observe the production of the crafts and
purchase your favorites. When shopping, this is certainly the best area
to visit.- Thai silk, cotton, lacquers, ceramics, leather products, silverware, umbrellas, woodwork,
jewelry, and antiques can all be found along this road. Due to the increased
shortage of antiques, artists have turned to creating replicas of old antiques
which portray the same beauty and characteristics as the genuine ones-
There is no attempt to pass off these neo-antiques as genuine. The famous
Bor Sang Village, which sells umbrellas and woodcarvings, is also located
on this road.
In cottage industries, young women manufacture
silk umbrellas and sah paper parasols.
This area begins at the ChiangMai-Hang Dong intersection, and continues
until the km. 15 post marker. This area is best known for its many antique
shops. There are also woodcarving, lacquers, ceramic, silver, and bamboo
craft stores along this route. In addition, on km, 15 of this road, lies
Tawai Village, which is famous for its woodwork. It s a good place to observe
carvings and neo-antiques being made, as well as being sold at cheap, wholesale
This road is famous for being home to generations of silversmiths. It
is here that much silverware is produced and sent to shops all over the
city to be sold. If you are in search of high quality, ChiangMai style
silverware with expert workmanship, then this is the place to visit. In
addition to silver, there is also lacquers, antiques, ceramics, and silk
available on this road.
As for those who desire to observe crafts being made in their traditional
surroundings, the different craft villages are a good place to visit. Apart
from the umbrella village of Bor Sang, and the Tawai woodcarving village,
there is also the rattan and wickerwork village of Hang Dong, the ceramic
