Thai silk became famous thanks to Jim Thompson in the 19th century a time where local quality costumes were all made using 100% Thai silk. In the 1950’s this luxury textile became world famous with businesses opening everywhere in Thailand. The production of our famous Thai silk begins with the Bombyx mori. The Bombyx mori is the tiny worm that comes from the eggs of a so called silk moth which in the process generates small cocoons with their spittle on Thai mulberry trees. In later stage our locals in Chiang Mai start to separate the completed cocoons from the mulberry trees, then soak them in of boiling water in order to separate the silk thread from the caterpillar inside the cocoon. The silk thread is later used to hand-weave our beautiful Thai silk fabrics. Our silk fabric is soaked in hot water and bleached before dyeing. We provide a variety of traditional colors. We hope you enjoy our fabrics.
