I spent most of my day wandering around museums and markets. My plan was to head out of the old city of Chiang Mai and have a look around the Textiles Museum in the Old Cultural Centre. Unfortunately, after spending an hour and a half looking for it, stopping for my new favourite drink at a coffee shop called ‘3 way coffee love’, I found that it was shut so headed back into town for a visit to the Lanna Folklife Museum.
I am fascinated by textiles at the moment, actually I have been for ages, but some of the fabrics here are amazing. My photos are a bit shit, as most were taken through glass but you should get an idea of some of the work that goes into them, particularly the tribal textiles of the Karen, Hmong and Lahu peoples.
