Title

Topical Seminar: On Mulberry - Lecture: Silk – Properties, Fabrication, and Application - Dr Dararat Mekkriengkrai

Description

Silk, known as the “Queen of Fibres” as it is strong, fine, and highly lustrous, is made from silkworm cocoons through a sericulture process. The triangular cross section with round edges of the silk fibre reflects light like a prism, making silk superior to other animal fibres. The uniqueness and creativity of Thai silk is considered one of Thailand’s cultural trademarks. While expanding on the properties of silk as well as its production and fabrication processes, Dr Dararat Mekkriengkrai will share the heritage of Thai silk, as well as her experience working closely with suppliers, researchers, and designers, focusing on technological advancements, innovative applications, and trends.
