Thai Flower Garlands (Phuang Malai) Funshop
SongKran Festival Special
Make Beautiful Garlands!
Thai flower garlands (phuang malai)* origins date back over two hundred years to the reign of King Rama V when flower arranging was a skill practised by ladies of the royal court. Today, decorative garlands are still very much a part of Thailand’s culture and fashion in many different shapes and sizes.
Large necklace shaped garlands are given as a welcome to long-forgotten friends and as a symbol of good luck to a bride and groom. And also presented to high-ranking officialdom at public spectacles as a welcome and thank you for their presence at important events.
