Maithong Suranaree Cooperative

Maithong Suranaree Co-operative. Makers of Rare & Fair's Pure Ikat Silk.

Maithong Suranaree is a silk weaving co-operative in Pak Thong Chai, Thailand. They are now on their 4th generation of weavers, creating modern fashion designs with traditional methods, something we feel is so important for the preservation of hand-weaving in the younger generations.

The weaving co-op was founded by Nang, who has worked tirelessly alongside her mother, Amnuay in an attempt to preserve the precious skills of ancient Ikat weaving. Nang’s silk trading started as a small shop in town in order to earn extra income to support her family.

Their pieces became so popular during this time that they had to take on more weavers, and it was then that they decided to start the co-operative so the whole village could benefit from their success.
