My Life at Isan Thailand.The Places is very quiet and peacefull


Thai silk the famous souvenir From Thailand

After  rice farming in Rainy season. The housewife in my hometown often often woven silk.So here is the most famous silk in Surin Thailand. Thai silk is produced from the cocoons of Thai silkworms. Thai weavers, mainly from northeast region of Thailand, raise the caterpillars on a steady diet of mulberry leaves.


Today i visit my relative  “ PA OU”  .She is  putting the cocoon into a vat of boiling water .This will kill and aid in the extraction of the silkworm and soften the cocoon.



After  boiling we eating silkworm or cooking in other menu.It is nutrient-rich protein.And she bleached silk  thread before dyeing in order to remove the natural yellow coloring of Thai silk yarn. To do this, skeins of silk thread are immersed in large tubs of hydrogen peroxide. Once washed and dried, the silk is then woven using a traditional hand operated loom.
