Tai Lue Weaving

tai-lue-weaving-center-chiang-kham-5

The greatest concentration of Tai Lue information, especially weaving, is to be found in the town of Chiang Kham. There are two weaving centres;

  • The largest, with a retail shop, is in Ban Thung Mok, located at the rear of Wat Thung Mok.
  • A smaller display and weaving demonstation area is located at Wat Phra That Sop Waen, towards the northern end of the Route 21 bypass.

Wat Thung Mok: the place is neither well sign-posted nor easy to find. The best way is to locate Wat Chiang Baan on Route 1021, approx 800 metres south-west of the 1021 bypass at the southern end of Chiang Kham. At Wat Chiang Baan, turn right and drive aprox 1 km. Wat Thung Mok is the 1st (only) wat on this street, on the right-hand side. Park inside the wat grounds, and walk through the rear gate and the OTOP shop is immediately to your left.
