As part of our regular buying trips to Thailand, Duang and I immerse ourselves in the customs and communities from which the products in our store originate. We are sitting on the deck of our rented house, over the rice terraces in a mountain valley north of Chiang Mai.
mmmmm! Fresh Ong jars in the morning!
We arrived early this morning, far out in the Thai countryside, to find our Ong producers hard at work making jars for our recent order. You have to get an early start in Thailand to witness a process that begins at sunrise, first mixing concrete to the perfect consistency, and then arduously forming it by hand to create these beautiful vessels.
These jars will arrive at Big Grass in mid-May. A few are still available to collect precious rain for the hot summer ahead. Reserve yours today!
Make an impression with these beautiful garden stepping stones. Hand formed in Thailand, wet concrete is imprinted with natural tropical plumeria, heliconia and bird of paradise leaves to create truly one-of-a-kind garden stepping stones and pavers. Measuring 12 inches by 24 inches, they will add a touch of paradise to your outdoor space. Arriving soon in the next container shipment of treasures collected during our most recent buying trip.
For generations, Thai people have used natural and recycled materials to create exquisite decor, furniture and other one-of-a-kind pieces for home and garden. We just returned from Thailand to visit with artisans who create many of the handcrafted, sustainable products we share with you at Big Grass.
