From its humble beginnings as a simple curry house, Saffron has since leaped beyond its origins to become the award-winning dining experience that it is today, and the signature Thai restaurant of Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts.
Curated around themes of community, craft and conservation, Banyan Tree Gallery has been a champion of sustainable supply chains for over two decades. We believe that what you choose to buy while travelling is as important as who we choose to work with. Find inspiration in beautifully handcrafted pieces that capture the spirit of the destination.
Since founding Banyan Tree Gallery in 1996, we have worked with 12 distinct craft techniques in over 90 partner communities across 15 countries, a third of which we have developed long-term relationships with.
We are especially proud of our work supporting female artisans, having commissioned more than 100 products from over 29 women’s groups to help supplement their income with a sustainable form of employment.
The Banyan Tree journey weaves together culture, heritage, entrepreneurship and artisanal creation as part of our mission to return dignity to craftsmen, celebrate the generational wisdom of handmade traditions, and create beautiful, relevant products for everyday use.
Banyan Tree Essentials
Our lead-free ceramics celebrate the beauty and heritage of artisanal craft, while our skincare and spa products inspired by Banyan Tree Spa’s treatments draw from time-honoured Asian wisdom and remedies. The natural, botanical blends and hand-ground mixtures in Essentials are both good for the earth, and for you.
