Queen supports centuries old silk sector in rural areas

21
Aug '09
Thai silk with its delicate texture and unique designs is gaining popularity these days and becoming a source of extra income for the residents in remote areas, all due to the initiative and support of Her Majesty, Queen Sirikit.

'Silpacheep' arts and crafts project under the 'Foundation to promote Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques' (SUPPORT) and which has the royal support of Queen Sirikit, promotes the use of Thai textiles and offers a source of supplementary income to the people in search of it.

Besides preserving the value of Thai handicrafts, this project allows the community members, particularly local women to generate extra income without leaving home.

In the North-east part of Thailand, weavers focus on 'Mudmee' or hand-woven naturally-dyed silk and the local designers weave their cloths with unique colours and patterns based on their culture, surroundings and experiences. The intricate designs and weaving techniques of the region brings global recognition to the craftsmanship here.

'Mudmee' fabric, the Queen of Thai Silk is exported to global markets. On account of the beauty, quality, designs and elegant texture, the silk enjoys good demand from fashion conscious countries like Italy, France and the US.

Thai silk has reached a particular standard in terms of modern patterns and colours. So, it can now compete with foreign silk in the world market, said a local weaver.
