Shopping for holiday gifts can seem mundane when the gifts are similar year after year. But now there's a way to buy exclusive home decor gifts such as eye-catching Thai wall art straight from Thailand! If your loved one appreciates finer things and dares to be different in her interior home decor, then art from Thailand will make an excellent gift for the holidays, birthdays or any time.
Understanding Kalaga Art
Before buying the first Thai decor art you see, it's good to know what you're looking for. Avoid the scams by educating yourself on what true, exclusive Thai wall art is really about. Look for the words "handmade kalagas" or "handmade Thai decor wall art." The best products are available through a few retail outlets based in Thailand. A kalaga is a creation made of thousands of stones, sequins and beads. Some works may take as long as a year to complete!
True handmade kalagas are embroidered on cotton velvet, and then are sealed by stuffing with a kapok fiber to emboss it and create a three-dimensional look and feel. Some even have silk edging to enhance the beauty. Prices range from under $100 to several hundred dollars, depending on the size and detail involved in making the piece. The word kalaga means "foreign curtain" in Sanskrit. It is a type of Hilltribes art with colorful, dramatic themes such as ancient dragons and elephants.
Thai decor wall art blends beautifully with various styles of teak wood furniture and can be hung in any living room, formal room, bedroom, hallway or even walls along staircases. If your loved one or friend loves exotic works of art and values high quality workmanship, then Thai wall art will fit well in her home and lifestyle.
Other Thai Gift Ideas
While looking for kalagas online, be sure to check out other possible Thai decor gifts. There are many to choose from, such as vases of all sizes, colorful silk pillowcases, gorgeous teak lamps, handmade candles and more. You can also buy Thai artificial flowers that are handmade with cotton, saa paper, or real flowers and reeds from Thailand. These differ from the typical silk or plastic flowers in that they don't show dust, and the flower petals are flexible. Each petal can easily be manipulated to create the look and feel you want! Artificial flowers can be ordered individually or arranged in bunches, or in a lovely Thai wooden vase. Order the flowers and other Thai decor accessories to accentuate the wall art gift if you want to give your recipient multiple items.
Shop online at the start of the holiday season to ensure adequate time for shipments. And look for authentic, handmade Thai decor for the best quality. Your loved one deserves a home decor gift she can appreciate his holiday season. And you won't have to leave your home desk to find amazing Thai gifts!
