'I work with handmade saa paper made from the bark of mulberry branches. I currently create greeting cards in the traditional Thai style and decorate them with hand-stamped elephants and flowers on aluminum. I like natural materials that are made by hand. My boxes are crafted from banana fibers because when the bananas turn ripe, we usually cut off the trunk and a new banana tree grows from the roots. The paper's unusual pattern is beautiful and we are recycling the earth's gifts.' What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
