"Non Wua Sor district, Udon Thani province northeastern Thailand.
Khit, a narrow cotton brocade from Nong Or traditionally used as a pillow cover was, with Her Majesty's guidance, transformed by SUPPORT weavers into a luxurious silk dress fabric. New colors, patterns, and wider cloth were among the changes Her Majesty masterminded. She became so fond of one of the new versions- pictured here on the loom-that the villagers named it The Queen's Pattern (Somdej khit)."
