Today, Thai silk making is considered to be one of the finest arts in the world, a product of a unique manufacturing process and bearing unique patterns and colors. As traditional Thai silk is hand woven, each silk fabric is unique and cannot be duplicated by commercial means. 6

A simple way to identify authentic silk is the "wedding ring" test. When pulling silk fabric through a ring, it will easily pass through. Imitation fabrics will bunch up and be difficult or impossible to pull through the ring.

2. Uneven Twill - it yields single or two- color fabrics, which are produced by weaving three threads so that the color of one thread dominates on one side of the fabric, while the two others determine the color of the reverse side.

Cotton textiles have also played a significant role in Cambodian culture. Though today Cambodia imports most of its cotton, traditionally woven cotton remains popular. Rural women often weave homemade cotton fabric, which is used in garments and for household purposes. Krama, the traditional check scarves worn almost universally by Cambodians, are made of cotton.

Laos According to Laos tradition, stories of their history were not passed on nor was it written, they were woven. Strand by strand, Lao stories were weaved in the intricate dense patterns and motifs of textiles.

Most diverse of these stories are the ones woven into a sihn—the Lao women’s ankle long skirt whose form is undeniable but whose patterns are unique to each skirt.
