Sathorn, gold cloth museum
Hundred-year-old Pha Sine Teen Chok textiles
The sathorn shop at Baan Had Siew is where the woven textile of Thai Puan is sold. The back of the shop also has a textile museum where some of the exhibits are more than a hundred years old.
At the north of Tambol Had Siew, Amphur Srisatchanalai, Sukothai province.
By car: Take the highway 101 from the post office and drive until you reach Talard Klang (Klang market) on the left side. This market is opposite the museum with the Sathorn textile shop at the front.
By bus: Take the Sukothai-Srisamrong-Sawankaloke-Srisatchanalai-Utaradit bus.
There are many kinds of textiles in this museum. Each piece tells a different story of Thai Puan at Baan Had Siew such as Pha Teen Chok with nine patterns, textiles used for wedding dresses and some used for religious ceremonies. All of these textiles are very beautiful and delicate.
There are Pha Sine Teen Chok from other areas such as Chiang Mai, Lampoon and Uttaradit. Behind the museum, there are old Thai style houses of the Thai Puan villagers and their household items such as equipment for cooking, for farming and for harvesting. Demonstrations of textile weaving can be seen here.
