Attraction Details :
Ban Khok Mo Weaving Village is a small village of Thai-Lao artisans whose ancestors migrated to the area during the Rattanakosin period. Soon after the golden rice fields are harvested, villagers turn their attention to the art of weaving, creating unique textiles. Row by row, traditional floral patterns are woven alongside of the beautiful Sin Tin Chok silk and Mat Mi silk.
Visitors may admire the beautiful textiles at two locations: Ban Khok Mo Weaving Center near Wat Khok Mo, and Ban Khok Mo Product Distribution and Weaving Demonstration Centre, behind the Khok Mo Sub-district Administration Organization office. The latter center also weaves pure cotton cloth dyed with natural substances.
To get there, from Amphoe Thap Than, take Highway No. 3013 to Amphoe Sawang Arom for approximately 11 kilometers. A 4-kilometer road leads to Ban Khok Mo. The weaving group is next to Wat Khok Mo.
The center is open daily from 8.30 am-5.30 pm.
