An exhibition, featuring traditional hand-woven textile reinterpretations of Thailand’s ethnic groups residing in the Isan region, will be organized as part of the forthcoming Jim Thompson Farm Tour 2013, an agricultural-cum-cultural knowledge exchange event to be held at Pak Thong Chai district in Nakhon Ratchasima.
Titled as ‘On Son Lai, Laai Pha Isan’, the exhibit, which aims to highlight and preserve the cultural inheritance of north-eastern Isan people, will showcase more than 11 forms of updated indigenous textile designs by students from 8 universities and local weavers of the region.
The participating students are attending on-site workshops with local weavers to get a first-hand idea of designing silk and cotton textiles, using environment-friendly natural colours, which would combine signature motifs of different weaving communities in Isan.
Nattanan Boonyasit and Jintawat Nakpan, the design students from the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang’s Faculty of Architecture, are gearing up to showcase their collection entitled ‘Drop In The Ocean’ at the event. Using natural indigo colour, the Surin province’s Pha Hol Boran Si Thammachat Ban Natang group-made brocade fabric collection is punched with contemporary lines.
Design duo Aleena Ittipaisan and Jenjira Luengwattana, from the Faculty of Agro-Industry, Kasetsart University, will feature the redesigned version of Pha Fai Yom Kram textiles. Originally created by Hattakam Puan Ban Wat That Prasit Center in Nawa district, Nakhon Phanom, the textile pattern, featuring unconventional shapes, is inspired from the formation of foam like substance produced during the mixing process of indigo powder with lime juice.
The Jim Thompson Farm Tour 2013 is scheduled to take place from December 14, 2013 through January 12, 2014.
