Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel unveils its limited edition Crocodile Mooncake Box made by Thailand premium leather designer PELLEVAH exclusively for the 2018 Mid-Autumn Festival.
The Crocodile Mooncake Box is handcrafted from PELLEVAH’s highest quality Siamese crocodile skin. The sophisticated ruby red skin is accented with the finest cow leather in a 24 carat gold tone. Each box is decorated with a meticulous lotus motif hand painted by a traditional Thai artist.
The octagon shaped box opens from the front revealing four drawers inside. Each drawer contains a freshly baked exquisite mooncake. The box’s timeless style is designed for use after the festival as an elegant display or jewelry box.
