EASTERN SERENITY

started as a sourcing company focusing on the products of Thailand. Our customers ranged from corner boutiques to nationally recognized brands. Growing quickly, our larger customers began pressing us to use “cheaper aluminum instead of bronze” or “machine made fabric with automated screen prints instead of individually dyed handmade fabric”. We stubbornly refuse to compromise by offering lower quality or copying real folk art into mass-produced simulacra. We believe it is possible to focus exclusively on the limited quantities of the very best items and still survive. Instead of a huge corporation in disguise, we are an independent project that strives to bring beautiful things to interested fellow travelers. Having known our suppliers for years, we’ve been to their homes, met their families, and eaten their cooking. We certainly need them as much as they need us. We also believe the Fair Trade concept, which improves conditions for workers, should also encompass high quality and balanced prices for the buyers. Our entire collection, unless otherwise stated, is still produced in Thailand.

BLUE AND WHITE SALVAGE Shards of Chinese porcelain were salvaged from shipments lost over a hundred years ago under the river that flows through Bangkok. Unlike the porcelain produced today, these blue designs were hand painted using very finely ground cobalt oxide. Modern production methods have replaced the hand painting as well as the cobalt oxide coloring technique. Each item in this collection will have a unique porcelain design chosen for its appeal and cut to shape. Set by hand in Sterling Silver. LJ980 A. Pendant (w/cord) L 0.75” W 0.9” $69 B.

HANDMADE SILVER JEWELRY On the border of Thailand and Burma, traditional slash and burn farmers have abandoned unsustainable lifestyles and now survive by fashioning 99% pure unadulterated silver jewelry. As even sterling silver (92.5% silver, 7.5% copper) is too rigid to shape by hand, our collection of handmade jewelry is the purest silver jewelry available. Each individual design is produced by distinct family units living in a sustainable way, surviving by making beautiful art within their communities. Over a period of time this jewelry will acquire a shady oxidation that can be easily wiped off or left to accentuate the design. This effect is also how you know for certain that you have a pure silver item.

Our fossil agate jewelry started as Indonesian coral in an offshore reef 20 million years ago. In rare and lucky instances, after being buried by volcanic debris and shifted above the water by earthquakes, the full pattern and character of the original coral was perfectly preserved in a silica matrix. We offer only the very best specimens straight from the jungles of Indonesia. Only a handful are chosen out of thousands that are put aside. While our selection process implements uniformity in polyp shape, size, color, and sharpness, every stone is unique and differences should be expected. Set in sterling silver and available in Goldenrod or Ivory shades. FJ160

Catalog Prices We strive to keep our prices steady over time; but shifts in currency exchange rates and the cost of raw material may compel us to change these prices at any time without notice.

Buddha Images Are sacred items to people who follow the Buddhist religion. Many Buddhists believe that every Buddha image is a potential vehicle for the Buddha’s incarnation. We import our Buddha images from Thailand, and the Thai Buddhists are often quite concerned about the symbols of their religion being treated respectfully by other cultures. In fact, they are so concerned about this, they demand that each and every exported Buddha image have a government permit. We respect their wishes and thank you in advance for doing likewise.

Some items prove to be more popular than predicted. Unfortunately, due to the handmade nature of our products, most of our items are carefully made by specialist artisans that cannot be rushed. Replacements cannot generally be secured with the speed of industrially manufactured items. Many of our customers understand this, but we are also aware that some orders are primarily for gift giving and recognize the disappointment when friends and family can’t receive their thoughtfully selected gift in time for the special day. A customer service representative at 800.641.0137 will work through the details with you on these occasions.

Please hold the original packing materials and damaged merchandise for inspection otherwise no claim, replacement, or refund can be honored. Please notify customer service at 800.641.0137 within 48 hours of receipt that you have received damaged goods. We will then give you the return shipping information and work through the return details. Please see our website for additional guarantee details. That being said, generally we are willing to do almost anything to satisfy our customers. David in the warehouse is an exceptionally forgiving soul, but we have spoken with him and he promises to do better in the future.

Mailing Lists and Privacy We occasionally make portions of our customer information available to selected organizations; if you wish to opt out of these exchanges or unsubscribe from our catalog or newsletter mailings please call us. We also send our catalogs to rental lists from other organizations.

What We Sell Our collection is sourced directly. We don’t purchase items from wholesalers, dealers, or middlemen. We support creativity and excellence in our product selection and supplier choices. The craftsmen, designers, and artists we choose to work with are often copied by less scrupulous organizations, but we insist on purchasing from the original sources to ensure high quality workmanship and materials.

Sizes and Fabric Care The charts below detail the measurements of our standard sizes. The women’s sizes reflect body measurements and the men’s sizes detail the measurements of the apparel. These are normal American sizes, similar to the majority of recognized retailers. We assure you that, although we carry Asian styles, we are not using Asian sizes. Please call us to discuss any sizing questions you might have, we’ll be happy to help.

RUNABOUT PANTS Take a pair of kneelength pants made of light-weight polished cotton, then add some whimsical beads and engraved tin elephant bangles on the bright cummerbund.

MONK BAG As they perform their ascetic duties, monks wear simple robes to cast aside all issues of status and comfort related to everyday clothes. These simple robes have no zipper, buttons, or pockets. However, a monk may still have to carry useful items (some medicine, a water bottle, religious books, etc…) so a simple bag is used for incidentals. Our two-color 100 % cotton tote has the same simplicity as the traditional monk accessories, but we added another complete bag as a liner, making it both stronger and fully reversible. The adjustable size monk bag pictured below has a tie strap and open pockets. Choose from the four colors below.

THE 'ONE' BAG Dear Sir or Madam, We have often wished that our monk bag was just slightly bigger so we could use it for grocery shopping. The shoulder strap makes it easy to carry several of them while empty, but carrying more than two full monk bags is an uncomfortable walk home. Can you make a square bottomed, slightly larger monk bag? Try to make the shoulder strap fold down inside before the groceries go in, then add a sturdy pair of handles so I can carry the bags out to the car. Oh, and so I don’t forget it before I go to the store, make it easy to fold up and toss in my purse or glove compartment. Also, don’t put any pockets or zippers on it to keep the bag reasonably priced so that I can afford enough bags to do all my shopping. Thanks for your time. Signed, a friend. Dear Mom, OK, here it is, but please stop writing in as if you don’t know us. Available color only as shown H 15” W 6” L 12” AC230 $19

THE ONE PURSE Sometimes a monk bag is bigger than you need to maintain optimum sleekness. This double-layered reversible shoulderbag (although the symbol is on one side only) should fit the bill. One inside zippered pocket. H 10” W 13” AC238 $33

The elephant is renowned for its intelligence and is known to actively think about its actions. At an elephant preserve in northern Thailand, a number of protected elephants have been trained to use a paintbrush with its trunk to apply patterns to paper or fabric. Let’s just say this again; the patterns on the stonewashed canvas bags were painted by an elephant. Seriously.

SUNDAY “Seven Days Looking”

MONDAY “Pacifying the Relatives”

GOLDEN BUDDHA PENDANTS The statuettes inside the enclosed globes are produced by Thai Buddhist temples using the raw material from donated coins, medallions, and statues melted together. The head monk blesses the newly cast statuettes and the community then supports the temple by purchasing the blessed amulets. The statuettes are encased in airtight acrylic globes closed with a 22 carat (92% pure gold) seal. Traditionally, you would wear the Buddha posture that corresponds to the day of the week on which you were born. The statues themselves (including the Kwan Yin and Ganesh pictured below) are not made of gold, but rather formed by the amalgam of all donated metals on the day the temple casts the statuettes.

THURSDAY “Deep Meditation”

In Thai Buddhist practice, each day of the week has a corresponding Buddha statue in a specific posture (some days have two). Almost every temple (Wat) has a statue for each day. Generally, Thais will make their merit and offerings to the Buddha image which matches the day of their birth. Each position has a specific history and often represents an image from a Buddhist parable. These miniature Buddha statues are fixed in diorama frames of hand-finished Thai acacia wood. Seven different styles correspond to each of the daily postures. Used as wall art or stand alone displays. H 6” W 6” L 3” WA460 $33

BRONZE RAIN DRUMS "FROG DRUM"

Dating as far back as 1000 BC, the Dong Son culture of Vietnam was arguably the earliest civilization in Southeast Asia to enter the Bronze Age. In some of the most ancient burial sites of this culture are found examples of cast bronze drums. Over the next three millennia they spread throughout the area and stylistic variations were created by artists from Indonesia to Burma and southern China. In these societies, ownership of rain drums, which were used in religious ceremonies, implied control over the hidden forces believed to influence events. Possessing a drum also signified the rarefied material wealth necessary to afford such large cast bronze artifacts. Our rain drums are made of bronze, authentically reproduced by specialized artisans in Thailand, unlike the similar-shaped aluminumware with a “bronze color finish” now offered by some large retailers. The drum tops (tympanum) possess the ubiquitous center sun pattern and intricately patterned concentric rings. Triple frog embellishments can support a glass top while the sides are accented by raised pastoral and fertility symbols. RDGR BROAD DRUMS

Teak Spirit House These intricate hand-carved teak houses are Thai spirit homes or ‘saan phra phum’. The people of Thailand believe that each plot of land contains local spirits in residence. When people build a new house or business this spirit must be offered a miniature abode to prevent any celestial interference in the household proper. According to folklore, the spirits themselves are neither good nor evil, but finicky and mischievous, demanding respect from humans and capable of disastrous actions if they don’t have a space of their own. Our spirit houses are handmade in northern Thailand from small and off-size teak sections, left over from plantation teak furniture factories and reclaimed construction. Truly sustainable and eco-friendly, our houses are delivered without spirits, which are sold separately.

FLORAL TEAK PANEL One of the many handicraft traditions in Lanna (northern Thailand) is the hand-carving of segmented teak panels that have become design favorites among Thais and world travelers alike. Like many Lanna carvings, the imagery evokes natural iconography with an eye toward the spiritual realm. The branches, leaves, and blossoms embody pastoral regularity while a lotus bud center and the hidden geometry of a mandala wheel shape provide a divine harmonic to complete the form. Hand-carved teak wood with a light clear-coat lacquer finish. All of the teak wood in our panels are sourced from registered suppliers who reclaim teak wood from old barns, homesteads, and other structures no longer in use. Each design may differ slightly as each artist has a unique approach.
