At Homes with Khun Udom Rientrakul “Phu Thai Textiles across the Mekong”


 

 

Khun Udom Rientrakul, the owner of Maya, a textile store, has been an avid textile collector for more than two decades.  His extensive collection has a wide range of Southeast Asian textiles from various ethnicities.

One group of textiles that Khun Udom is passionate about is the Phu Tai textiles.  They are found on both sides of the Mekong River in Laos and Thailand.  He will explain about the stories of Phu Thai people which are shown on these beautiful textiles.  The details on each piece provide interesting tales about Phu Thai lifestyle, history, and beliefs in different periods and evolutions from each side of the river banks.


Among these Phu Thai textiles is Phrae Waa, which is considered the “Queen of Thai silk.”  Phrae Waa textiles are very intricate and requirea high level of weaving skills.
