  tiab

 

Myanmar

Many hsun ok, i.e. conical food container from Burma, that in Thai are known as tiab, are elaborately decorated, often with a kanok-like design in gold leaf or engraved with a pattern filled with a colour.

 

They have become a much loved souvenir from Myanmar and come in all sizes, yet they can easily be taken apart to facilitate transportation.
