What is Thai Silk Fabric?
We create this very special and unique product called Thai silk in our village with great pride and care. In fact there are times after making their Thai silk fabric or Thai silk scarves, some of the lady weavers in our Thai Silk Magic group do not want to sell them as they love their finished product and are so proud of it.
Thai Silk Weaving – A Traditional Craft
The art of making Thai silk started where we live, in north-eastern Thailand. The handmade silk fabric weaving here in our village is a traditional craft. We have been making Thai silk in our village, near the city of Si Sa Ket in north- eastern Thailand, for almost 100 years. And our great-greatgrandmothers for many years before that!

Unique Characteristics of Thai Silk
Did you know that silk is a protein and does not conduct heat? This makes it an extremely good insulator and so it’s not just great for clothes but silk is even used for insulating electric wires and astronaut’s clothing.
Thai Silk is an amazing fabric as it can be warm to wear because it prevents body heat from dissipating but as well, when used for light-weight clothing like lingerie, it is very cool fabric as the fine fiber permits air to pass through the material. Did you also know that a silk filament has a greater tensile strength than steel? Other silks each have their own features and characteristics. Pure Thai silk fabric differs from western, Japanese and Chinese silk in its texture and distinctive tie-dyed sheens.
The weaving of the pure Thai silk fabric, like all hand woven fabrics, has two distinct sets of threads called the warp and the weft.
These are interlaced with each other to form the Thai silk fabric. The warp threads run lengthways of the piece of fabric and the weft runs across from side to side. Using a mix of different colors, it is the weft that gives pure Thai silk fabric its amazing natural sheen and texture.
Thai Silk – A Significant Part of Our Heritage
Thai Silk Magic fabrics have the natural blended textures and patterns of northeastern Thailand and all the benefits of an artistic tradition handed down from generation to generation. It is a handmade work of art by the artisans of our village.
