Na Muensri cloth

Na Muensri is a village in Nayong, on the way to Chang Hai Cave. From the past, Na Muensri has been the center for weaving cloth. The weaving remains basically a cottage industry. Nowadays, the need for this kind of clothes become less. Anyhow, Na Muensri Clothes become one of Trang's famous handicraft, specially the one with the pattern called "Lai Look Kao". In those day, "Lai Look Kao" was only a pattern for high-class people. For lady, this pattern is used on scarfs, handkerchiefs, headdresses and "Sabai" (a piece of fine and beautiful cloth worn to cover the blouse in Thai traditional dress.) For men, this kind of cloth is used as a belt and head decoration. Today, a group of lady, having "Lady Kuson Nil-Laor" as the leader, have been setup for teaching their younger to be good at this valuable art. Visitors often come to Na Muensri to buy the best Na Muensri Clothes from the group.
