Would you like to visit the kingdom of luxury items, oriental spices, Buddhist locks and Siamese cats! Then your choice should fall on Thailand. Why? It was in Thailand, you can feel the magic charm of mystery, fragrant aroma of wood, decorated with sapphires, and packaged for you in a lovely lacquered casket, trimmed in Thai silk. Are you intrigued? Then go ahead! By Thai gifts! Elephants. You can find them everywhere. In a large number of elephants are sold out of wood, gold and copper.

Also popular are the various panels, plates, masks. Unbelievable, but in Thailand so cherish these animals, which have started to issue them passports. From now on, each elephant put personal identification document. I wonder whether the presence of a local residence affect the fate of elephants? By the way, elephants are a symbol of the Buddhist spiritual knowledge and stability. So, if you wish to spiritual component of your life has always been stable, then you simply need to purchase vital Thai elephant.

Silk and cotton. Specifically, items of it. Indeed, this is material that deserve your attention. Their quality – very high. Thailand does not please the low prices of silk, but they are still lower than in Europe. Silk production was preserved in pristine form of civilization. Until now, pupae of silkworms are treated specially according to old recipes, but then they get out of the thread. With the help of a loom (of the same ancient tradition of weaving as well as in Thailand) a day to give 4-meter canvas. Not so much … the Thai weavers are working no more than 4 hours. And not because their rights are zealously protected by unions, but because the work requires a lot of weaving of accuracy and concentration. Products made of snakeskin and crocodile leather. Belts, wallets, handbags, purses and shoes.
