With the meaning of the image of a rooster as a symbol of hard work, while banana leaves and red peony symbolize dreams and luck.
Then, in 1957, many entrepreneurs opened a rooster cooking equipment factory in Lampang province, Thailand. Because the area is known to be rich in clay minerals, which are the main ingredients for making pottery.
