Thai Textile Society member Lady Lea Dingjan-Laarakker has invited members to an exhibition of her newest silk designs at Amantee, in the Laksi area of Bangkok.
Lady Lea is renowned for her free-hand designs on silk. For eighteen years, she has worked closely with weavers in Ban Reng Khai, a village in Surin province. She has been able to draw upon ancestral weaving traditions, which were disappearing. Through her activities, these traditions have been revitalized and, today, Ban Reng Khai silk and Lea’s distinctive designs, receive international recognition.
In addition, Lady Lea has received certificates of appreciation from HRH Princess Galayani Vadhana and HRH Princess Somsawali. For a profile of Lady Lea, please click the following link to the thaitextilesociety.org website: http://www.thaitextilesociety.org/profiles/index.asp
