Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration

Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration

Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse has unveiled its exclusive mooncake collection, created in collaboration with The Gallery, a social enterprise supporting Thai artists and entrepreneurs. This year, the hotel has teamed up with renowned Thai artist Jarunee Mateekul, affectionately known as ‘Uncle Pl’, to bring a blend of artistry and flavour to the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration.


The collaboration with the gallery for The Lunar Pouch packaging, which supports the local community, ‘Ton Pao’ from Chiang Mai province reflects the Gallery’s commitment to promoting Thai culture and fostering local talent. They have curated a selection of mooncakes that not only tantalise the taste buds but also narrate a tale of creativity and passion within the local community.

Renowned Thai artist Jarunee Mateeku designed the boxes.


Furthermore, their dedication to preserving the value of handmade paper and safeguarding the identity of the paper-making community in Chiang Mai is evident. Sa Paper, crafted from natural materials like corn, sugarcane bagasse, coffee, peanut shells, etc., showcases a diverse array of styles and patterns originating from the villagers’ ingenuity within the community.


Jarunee Mateekul’s journey into the art world began under the guidance of esteemed mentors, including ‘Kru To’ – M.L. Chiratorn Chirapravati – and ‘Kru Parn’ – Somnuek Klangnok. Inspired by the wisdom imparted by her mentors, Jarunee embarked on a creative journey that led her to discover her unique artistic skill.
