Under the Spell of Silk -  Collectors Corner0

Saturday 13th December, 2014

For the very first time Dr. Tom Vitayakul will display and talk about his private collection of textiles. The selection will be Thai and Khmer silks from southern Isaan and Cambodia, displaying mainly Ikat and some brocade.  The collection ranges from old or vintage to new and reproduced pieces of old patterns and motifs. Thanks to the suppleness of silk, Dr. Vitayakul started using hand-woven textiles as clothing for both comfort and style.  Beside the beauty of silk, he fell in love with the craftsmanship, meaning and stories of many of the pieces. He began building his collection as wearable art and later moving to gather woven paintings.
