Official description

Borsang is known throughout Thailand as the ‘Umbrella Village’. The village is situated north of Chiang Mai along the Sankhampaeng Road where it meets the Doi Saket Road about 10km out of town. Borsang is famed for handmade parasols made from bamboo and rice paper. The village has made umbrellas for generations and the art has been handed down through a small number of families that live here and is said to have originated from a Thai Buddhist monk who learned the practice on a pilgrimage to Burma.
