Isaan

Regular price $180.00

100% Silk Twill
36" X 36"

The northeastern region of Thailand, known as Isaan, has a rich history of handweaving silk fabric.  This fabric, called mudmee, is created in an intricate process where the loose silk threads are tied off in precise patterns and combinations, then dyed.  After the strings have been colored, they are woven together in a plain weave pattern.  As the threads are woven together, the fabric's design emerges.   
The center of the scarf features Thai flora and fauna—some are critical in the mudmee process, while others are important in Thai culture.  Mulberry leaves are the principle diet of silkworms and the indigo plant is an important source of blue dye.  The cascading yellow flowers in the center of the scarf are branches of Cassia fistula, the national tree of Thailand.  
“Isaan” takes you on a journey through Thailand, along winding roads edged with plants , to a click-clacking loom in a small northeastern village.
