WALL HANGINGS or Kalagas
are originally a Burmese art form. The villages over the border in the Maa Sai
District of Chiang Mai soon adapted the technique to Thai themes.
Each wall hanging is an individual work of art created from hundreds to thousands
of individual beads, stones, and sequins. Some can take up to a year to make!
Due to the intricate and individual nature of these works of art, and due to the
remoteness of their source, all kalagas are supplied in original condition, which
may include some missing beads and sequins. ExporThai makes every effort to
select the best available in the spirit of quality our customers have come to expect.
The photos are representative of the theme of the kalaga, but each piece
will vary a bit in colors, design, and materials. Each piece is provided with a fabric
border supplied by the artist. Although this is more for protection than decoration,
we find most of these borders have a character of their own.
Not all designs are always available. In the event that a particular
design is not available, you will be advised of our suggested substitution
(which may not appear on the website) before you are invoiced.
