One of a highlight on my holiday trip in Chiang mai is 'Sunday walking street' where I found lots of handmade crafts and old-fashion produces which hard to find nowadays! I've decided to spend 2 weeks here so I can visit the Sunday walking street twice, just to make sure I'm not missed anything.
I set off early while sellers were setting up their stalls because I love to see their preparation. This seller in particular had catch my attention as what she sells are local produces and I haven't seen them for a very long time.
|The blue flower is 'Un-chun flower' (ดอกอัญชัน) one of Thai flower/herbs [click here for more info of un-chun flower]|
At the front are 'Ma-kok' (vegetable) the local use and mix in 'Som tum' (papaya salad)
I love to see she used banana leaves as packaging. It looks great as I remember when I was young and it's good for environment too. This presentation inspired me to use the local leaves in UK as vase or tray to display my flowers.
|This flower is called 'Ka-dung-gha' (ดอกกระดังงา) their fragrance are amazing lovely, soft and delicate.|
More local crafts is coming soon!! see you next post ;)
