KOME TONG CARD

We sent some Kome Tong cards from Chiang Mai as wedding thank yous, and re-stocked on a recent trip up North. Kome Tong is a tiny store on Charoenraj Road by the Ping River, and it also operates a stall in Central Chiang Mai’s Northern Village. Their designs are based mostly on temple murals, religious images (the ganesha on our blog is also from one of their cards), and other folk art.

Hand-produced on hand-made mulberry pulp paper, these kinds of cards are usually sold in small stores or through royal/non-profit projects.
