Sights to See: umbrella making, Borsang Village, Sankamphaeng, Thailand

In this covered outdoor pavilion, busy workers put together paper umbrellas. You’ll see frame-making, paper-making from the bark of mulberry trees, the covering of umbrella frames with paper or cotton or silk, and hand-painting. In between, workers will paint permanent works of art on your camera case, hat, or jeans. A huge gift shop adjoins.

  1. What a nice comment, but wasn't it meant to go here?:

  2. I've been out to Borsang a number of times, and there are always great photo ops.
