The International Maew Boran Association

The International Maew Boran Association (TIMBA) offers an official laminated pedigree with original graphics representative of the Ayutthaya time period (1351 - 1767).

The Tamra Maew is written on Khoi paper, made from the twigs and branches of the Khoi tree (Streblus asper ). The tradition of making Khoi paper is now a lost art in Thailand. TIMBA does however offer the unique opportunity for pedigrees printed on hand made elephant dung paper. TIMBA is focused on the preservation of Thai cats, and values other organizations efforts to preserve and protect animals in Thailand. All proceeds for pedigrees printed on elephant dung paper will directly support the elephant conservation center in Chiang Mai Additional information about the paper making process can be found Here.

An example of a TIMBA 3-generation pedigree and individual registration certificate can be viewed below.
