Something Thai

Last week I went to the fabric market and found so many beautiful hand embroidered pieces for Thai traditional dance costumes. The fabrics were woven in decorative Thai patterns. The artisans then hand embroidered the gold beads onto the patterns which add more volume, texture and glamour to those pieces. The photos below show textile of the sarong part of the costumes.

Although these pieces are rather for commercial use and they are not the highest of quality in terms of handicraft, but it is just beautiful to see, touch and appreciate the uniqueness of Thai craft :)
