THAILAND – Phrae – Mo Hom dyeing workshop
Phrae is famous for the “Thai Blue Jeans” or “Mo Hom” as it is called in Thai. Traditionally, this natural dyeing technique was mainly used to color farmers’ clothing and was passed on from generation to generation. In Thung Hong, near the town of Phrae, there are many shops selling these traditional outfits, as well as more modern creations. A visit to one of the oldest workshops in the village gives the chance to have an hands-on experience and learn how the dyeing process works. There is an opportunity to tie-dye a T-shirt using the natural Mo-Hom dye and have an introduction to batik waxing. An interesting and fun activity for all ages!
