ChaKri design is the feature of flower pattern which is the many-petaled flower or daisies in round shape with original colors in white and the pollen painted in red. The artist has endeavored to make this flower significant by surrounding it with leaves. It is a delicate flower and seems to float in the middle of its petals. The meticulous leaves around this flower stress the delicacy of the flower as if leaves were blown by the wind.
ChaKri is a pattern blending art from the east to the west. This pattern was most popular during the reign of King Rama V (1887) who reformed Siam (Thailand) into the comparably modern nation it has become. Chakri is the king dynasty name, so the “ChaKri” design was primarily used commemoratively by Royals in official ceremonies including as gifts bestowed upon Royal officials, nobilities, and honored guests, so this design is a symbol of successive reward. Due to the advanced techniques used in Thailand by our artisans, the ChaKri China has now gained more popularity than in its native China.
