Silk cushions with envelope and tassel. The triangular envelope contains rare Karen silk from the border of Burma and Thailand. Sop Moei Arts was formed under the sponsorship of the Swedish International Development Agency with the aim of providing healthcare and education to Karen tribes-people. The partnership has produced some of the most unique textiles and designs in the interior design world. Rather than relying solely on traditional patterns and crafts, European consultants were brought in to help the weavers of Sop Moei reinterpret their original lines with a view to creating a range of products suitable for modern living.

Silk yarns are spun by hand from the cocoons of silk worms on wooden or plastic tubes before going through a complicated dying process and being transferred to a hand-loom. Several ultra fine threads are drawn together to make a thicker fibre suitable for weaving. Thai silk has a lustrous sheen and slightly uneven texture that makes it ideal for hand weaving and distinguishes it from sleek machine-woven fabrics, and even from Chinese and Indian Silk, which although softer, have a more even and manufactured feel. Weaving silk by hand-loom is a time consuming and skilled undertaking and weavers must balance the use of both their hands and feet at once to produce a piece of silk fabric. Silk is the natural filament produced by the salivary glands of silkworms, a type of moth that feeds on the leaves of the mulberry tree. When they are mature, the silkworms spin cocoons. Thai Silk has triangular fibres that reflect light like prisms. It also has layers of protein that gives it a natural sheen and makes it smooth, strong, lightweight, supple, and with proper care able to last a century or more. The SOTO range includes cushions, accessories, table runners, scarves, hangings & a selection of fashion clothing made using the very highest quality smooth and textured Thai Silk, and a variety of weaving and manufacturing techniques. Thai silk provides a quality, texture and richness unmatched by any other material. Smooth Thai silk often has a rare iridescence, produced by using different colour threads for the warp and weft weave. Textured Thai silk is relatively thick, and coarse to look at, but nevertheless soft to the touch.
