AsiaCreations Showroom: Carved Soap Flower type: Cosmos in orange and yellowWelcome to our Showroom for Handmade Bamboo Umbrellas!

In our area of southeast Asia, bamboo is an abundant and quickly growing plant. Naturally, craftswomen and craftsmen over the centuries have honed their skills of crafting it into an abundance of products, both for household and decorative use. It is a very workable and strong material. At the same time it is environmentally friendly because it is easily planted and grows very quickly. After useful product life, it decomposes naturally under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions, such as by composting or in modern landfills.

Greeting Cards Showroom

 Banana Paper Greeting Card BC15Welcome to our Greeting Cards Showroom! We like to present to you our greeting cards made of handmade banana paper, hand decorated with natural pressed flowers, leaves and grasses.

Countryside Bananas

Unlike the banana's that you encounter in a western department store, northern Thailand's bananas are generally not grown on plantations. You'll usually find them in the countryside's ubiquitous small private patches, either as a source of additional income for rice or vegetable farmers, or as a self-sufficiency source of food and nutrition.

These home grown bananas are often of the "sweet banana" type, they are somewhat smaller and, as the name indicates, positively delicious. They're said to be of high nutritional value, and one of the first "solid" foods that babies will receive.

Banana Paper

There are other surprising uses for the banana plant. One of these is paper making.

A Short History of Mulberry Paper

Updated 5 November 2013

Asiacreations Showroom: Mulberry tree branches with mature and immature fruit - Broussonetia papyriferaHere in Thailand, where our Mulberry paper products originate, the Paper Mulberry tree is known as "Ton Saa". Since people always veer toward the shortest, most effective way to convey meaning, here in Thailand we usually refer to Mulberry paper as "Saa paper".

Saa paper is made from the Mulberry tree's bark. There are some interesting language connections between the term bark and written language. The English word "book" by its old English meaning derives from the current word “bark”. Related to the olde English is Dutch which now uses "boek". Also German uses "Buch", which in turn also relates to "Buche" (the beech tree). Similarly in French, Spanish and Italian the term book, that is "livre" is based on on bark, the Latin "liber" (1).

Paper from Mulberry bark plays a dominant role in the timeline of paper history.

Artisans of Northern Thailand

The Kingdom of Thailand is located in tropical Southeast Asia. It borders Laos, Cambodia, the Gulf of Thailand, Malaysia, the Andaman Sea and Burma. Our grandparents still knew the country as Siam. As an unneeded clarification, the country is not in any way related to China or Taiwan.

Before we get to know a bit more about our Artisans and AsiaCreations itself, lets have a look at the places where we live and work. We'll start with a general overview and then get down to details... Like, what's the daily minimum wage in northern Thailand?
