List of 5 Places for Purchasing Thai Silk in Bangkok

Thai silk is produced from the cocoons of Thai silkworms. Thailand’s silkworm farmers cultivate both types of the domesticated silkworms that produce commercial silk: Samia ricini, commonly known as the eri silkworm, which produces matte eri silk, and the Bombyx mori, producer of the better known, glossy mulberry silk. The latter is by far the larger silk producer of the two.

In Thailand, the Center for Excellence in Silk at Kasetsart University’s Kamphaeng Saen campus plays a leading research role in sericulture research as well as providing silkworm eggs and know-how to Thai farmers.
