  rom thong

 

Thailand

Lan Na-style parasols, called rom thong, are often used in traditional or religious ceremonies and processions, especially in Northern Thailand. The edges are usually festooned with curved hanging chains of artificial dok rak flowers (fig.), sometimes with additional garlands of artificial flowers that hang at intervals.
