Rasi Sayam

Rasi Sayam

 

 Rasi Sayam (32 Sukhumvit, Soi 23; 66-2/258-4195) may be the country’s best crafts gallery.  American owner Jonathan Hayssen does the legwork for you:  he searches out native products, then coaches the artisans on how to improve their wares, whether $2 coconut-shell ladles  or $110 gold panning bowls.  Everything is perpect condition, and displayed with care in a traditional teak house.

Rasi Sayam is the best source for Thai crafts, incuding reproduction ceramics.
