The purpose of this website is to introduce us to you. For over twenty-five years, Chinalai Tribal Antiques has been buying and selling ethnographic textiles and tribal and village antique art from mainland Southeast Asia and China. Our clients include museums, corporations, designers and private collectors from all over the world. We guarantee everything we sell to be authentic and of the stated origin, age, materials and condition.
We are especially intrigued by functional and spiritual artifacts and textiles from Cambodia (currently Kampuchea), Laos (currently the Lao PDR), Burma (currently Myanmar), Siam (currently Thailand) and Vietnam, and from South and Southwest China. Sometimes we venture into other parts of the world, especially for jewelry and textiles, and we also carry a selection of antique furniture and architectural and interior elements.
One of our greatest satisfactions has been to attempt to document some of the unique, rare and wonderful pieces that pass through our hands, frequently with very little information available about them. A list of our publications is offered under the “publications” heading. Another pleasure for us is to work with museums and private collectors to build new collections and complement existing ones.
We chose the images for this website to represent our vision and the range and quality of our material. To discuss your needs or interests please contact us by telephone or email. Since we purchase most of our pieces in their countries of origin and also travel to do shows, there are periods when we are away and may not be able to get back to you immediately, but we will respond as soon as we can.
