Poom Din Shop: Folk Art Products from Thailand
Poom Din is very unique store in Bangkok, fill with color and many treasures. Tangnet is the owner and creator of this store, she makes some of the folk art sold here. You can see her studio beside the counter, fill with pieces of wood, poms-poms, ribbons of colors and great pieces of fabric. She carves the wood to put together the most lovely kids’ mobiles of animals with great creativity; flying horses, pigs on planes and funny rabbits; her style is so free that makes you smile. She also carves the logo store on stamps to make the tags as shown in the photos. Some stamps are sold here with different illustrations. Every element used in Tangnet creations comes from different parts of Thailand; the east, some the tribes in the north that she goes there personally to learn the techniques and work with the people. She also sells great pieces of vintage clothing and craft from other thai artists.

This wood carved mobiles are by far the cutest most unique pieces of decor for a baby’s room I’ve seen in a long time. Simple, rustic and with the thai touch of color! Tangnet makes each of these animals by hand, then putting together with other elements a beautiful garland of flying animals.
The keychain are also hand made by Tangnet mixing different folk elements from different thai tribes; she personally goes there work with the artisan and selects the material, it takes a lot of effort and patience to build one of each of these pieces.
