Pa-Da Cotton Textile Museum, Chomg Thong, Northern Thailand
After WWII Mrs. Saeng-da Bansiddhi started working with local women to preserve traditional dyeing and weaving techniques and provide jobs for local women. She was awarded the honor of National Folkcraft Artist in 1985. Her home is now the Pa-Da Cotton Textile Museum and is run by her daughter and granddaughter. Natural dyes are still being used to dye the warp ikat cotton textiles woven by local women on the looms under the museum.

Weaving is done on looms under the Museum.
