Traditional Handicrafts

Thailand is justly renowned for the quality and variety of its traditional handicrafts. Produced in a rich variety of media, these make not only ideal souvenirs or gifts, but are also perfect as distinctive items for interior design and home decoration.

Royal Crafts

No finer examples of traditional Thai craftsmanship can be found than those produced under royal patronage. As a result of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit's efforts, SUPPORT (Foundation of the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques), was established in 1976 to help the poor and revive Thailand's time-honored crafts. Today, craftsman working under SUPPORT guidance produce a wonderfully rich collection of many kinds of traditional handicrafts. These SUPPORT crafts may be purchased from the Foundation's chain of exclusive outlets, Chitrlada Shops, and all proceeds go to the on-going development of the project.


Practiced in southern Thailand for hundreds of years, nielloware is the craft of decorating gold and silver objects with delicate etched designs filled with a metal alloy. Workmanship of high quality today finds expression in a number of beautiful nielloware trays, boxes, vases, and other items widely available in Bangkok and the south, notably in Nakhon Si Thammarat.
