Made by skilled weaver from Lampang province
For generations Thai folks in the northern regions such as Chiang Mai, Lampang and Lamphun are famous for making a living in wooden furniture products from local wood. Their workpieces are known for high quality and design.
Start with building a wooden house, now it has been developed into appliances such as tables, cabinets, beds, benches and other home decorations.
From the local bamboo..
The raw material preparation process starts from cutting bamboo into segments. Then cut into small strips and bring to a boil. Break into small strips. Dry in the sun and then used to weave the shape When finished, it is then smoked again for insect repellant to make it more durable.
Bamboo, a local plant that saves the world
In the past, the area in Lampang Province had problems with monoculture crops causing the soil issue and forest degradation. Bamboo, one of the local plants, has become a main player in solving problems between forests and communities. Because bamboo can store a large amount of water – it can absorb 5 times more carbon dioxide than other plants and release 35% more oxygen, planting bamboo can significantly revive the ecosystem, and become a new source that generates income for the community.
Is Lampang Stool a right choice for you?
Stools can improve body posture by..
- Allowing you to sit in a more natural sitting position ( spine in a natural curve), as opposed to a traditional chair’s sitting position that encourages a straight back
- Legs, and in particular, thighs will slope downward when sitting on a stool. This encourages your pelvis and lower back into a more neutral position
- You will begin to do “active sitting” on a stool, as opposed to slouching which messes up back and core muscles.
Tips when sitting on a stool for health..
- Sit high up – this may involve raising the elevation of the stool if possible
- Avoid crossing your legs
- Keep your rear close to the back end of the stool seat
- Sit at an elevation that allows your knees to be below your hip level
- Get up to walk around regularly
- Keep your body’s weight balanced as evenly as possible between your hips
