Get to know Yan Lipao

‘Yan Lipao’ is traditional Thai Basketry

Yan Lipao or things made with the vine of the Lipao plant. This vine is very fine and strong, and once woven into exquisite objects, it has a delicate texture that radiates the precise, patient talent of the (mostly) female weavers. Native to Nakhon Si Thammarat province in Southern Thailand, the Yan Lipao fern grows like a vine and the tough fiber has been used for weaving for several centuries.

It was originally used for quotidian crafts like baskets, trays and fish traps it shifted to more aristocratic use during Thailand’s early Rattanakosin period (1782 – present)

The pain-staking weaving process creates these beautiful items by applying the natural dark and light palette of the Yan Lipao to make contrasting and intricate patterns.
