THAILAND CREATIVE DESIGN CENTER (TCDC)
Dry Clean Only joined the trip with TCDC to the
field study in Kalasin Province to have a survey for
local materials and observe lifestyles of local villagers
in order to obtain information of local wisdoms and
hand woven cotton fabrics to be able to create
new designs for value addition of the products.
The survey also aimed to find the possibility to
increase income channels for the villagers. Dry
Clean Only has tried hand at hand woven cotton
fabrics to create new products which must be
simple but modern and attractive. The cutting must
be refined to create high value and elegant look.
The inspiration behind the design concept is that
Dry Clean Only pays close attention to urban-life
environment and lifestyle of city women in order
to create and design the hand woven natural cotton
fabrics from Kalasin Province to go in conformity
with the lifestyle of city women who mainly
look for simple but fashionable and modern outfits;
at the same time, the outfits is expected to be
comfortable. The fabric itself is with minimal pattern
which allows access for broader group of people as
well as exhibits the Thai wisdom.
