This exquisite Thai Elephant lacquerware keepsake box was handmade in Chiang Mai, Thailand by the skilled artisans of Barn Kern village.
Their traditional techniques passed down through generations use resinous sap tapped from a lacquer tree; and then the designs are intricately engraved before finally applying gold leaf in a slow 7 step process of drying the layers and reapplying. Each piece is a unique work of art that has taken weeks to complete.
This Elephant box is the perfect size to hold jewelry, glasses, pens and other treasures. It will be a decorative piece you'll enjoy while helping preserve the handmade culture of Thailand.
