Thai silk is renowned globally for its quality and unique characteristics. It is prominent internationally due to its lustrous appearance, smooth texture, and vibrant colours. The craftsmanship involved in producing Thai silk is highly valued. While it may not have the sheer production volume compared to other textiles, Thai silk is often considered a luxurious and premium fabric, contributing to its strong standing in the global market.
