    Ban Phon Phrae Wa Silk

    This village is located 70 kilometres from Kalasin on Highway No. 227. It is famous for beautiful woven cloth. It is unique to the Phu Thai tribe whose ancestors migrated from the city of Thaeng in Vietnam. The cloth is made of Mat Mi silk and shows exemplary workmanship. It is divided into two patterns: Lai Lak (principal pattern) and Lai Thaep (stripe pattern). The colour of Phrae Wa silk is not only in red as it used to be, but there are many more colours that fit the market needs such as beige, pink, purple, blue and green. It can be considered that Phrae Wa silk is a rare handcrafted textile product in Thailand. H.M. Queen Sirikit has been supporting and promoting silk until it has become known locally and internationally.
