This marvelous traditional Thai umbrella is similar to those used to shade the Siam kings and queens of the past centuries. It features a gorgeous Thai traditional gold pattern design against an all-maroon background color, which we refer to as oxblood. The color maroon has a strong resemblance to red-brown, which is typically related to the color of mother earth. Maroon is also associated with healing and the power to keep away evil spirits. Gold is a color strongly tied in with health, spiritual riches and royalty. It has been used in Buddhist art and culture for more than 2,000 years. One of the most striking colors, gold is still associated with divine principles (such as the golden ratio of phi) and things of high value (think gold cards or the golden goose or King Midas). It is also linked to the wisdom of aging, such as the 50-year wedding anniversaries and the “golden age” referring to the height of civilization. This beautiful traditional umbrella combine s both maroon and gold, making it a magnificent way to decorate or be seen in high fashion. Made from sturdy bamboo and oil-treated cotton fabric, this hand-painted and handcrafted umbrella is not only a joy to see but is durable as well. Use it as decoration in a corner of your floor or hang upside down from your ceiling. This Thai umbrella is also ideal for shading you from the sun and will not allow light to pass through. At 35 inches in diameter, it is large enough to block out the sun for most people. The tradition of umbrella making in Thailand extends back hundreds of years. The artists who create these umbrellas take great pride in their work and they are meticulously made entirely by hand. We have intentionally sourced the highest quality umbrellas the country can offer. Our line of traditional Thai umbrellas is also offered in the colors of cream, red, black and white.
