Ban Phon Phrae Wa Silk Weaving Group   -    
 Known as:        
 Description:   This weaving center is renowned for its beautiful hand-woven silks, which are unique to the northeastern Phu Thai minority. The fabrics are made of Mat Mi silk, and boast exemplary workmanship. There are two main patterns: Lai Lak (principal pattern) and Lai Thaep (stripes).

The group has added many other colors of silk to its traditionally red repertoire, and now includes beiges, pinks, purples, blues and greens. Phrae Wa silk is presently considered a rare handicraft in Thailand, and has won support and praise from HM Queen Sirikit herself.

This village is located 70 kilometers from Kalasin on Highway No. 227.
