An Isan Version of Duck Architecture: Kratib

Jim Thompson Farm, Nakhonratchsima, Thailand (December 2009)

*Kratib (กระติบ) is an folk invention of a portable sticky-rice container widely used in the northeastern part of Thailand. It consists of two interlocking cylinder-shape bowls made from woven bamboo stripes, which can maintain the temperature of  cooked sticky rice while allowing moisture to seep through.
