Handwoven from locally raised, hand-reeled, naturally dyed silk, this is a belt traditionally worn by Buddhist men when going to temple. The rich, purply-orchid color is a standout feature of the cloth, being woven with a lac (deep red) dyed warp and a sapanwood (orchid) weft. The primary pattern is of interlinking naga with diamonds of flowers and water pattern on the end. Photo of the weaver, our friend Sukkhavit's daughter, modeling the belt being worn as a scarf is included.
