Thai Silk Mudmee textile art traditionally comes in a fixed size of standard length and width designed to be sufficient for one color-coordinated outfit like a blouse and skirt — approximately a four yard piece of cloth that is two yards of solid or two-tone color and two yards of the mudmee pattern. The precise size is usually 360 x 90 cm (141.7 x 35.4 in.) [3.94 yards] with 180 x 90 cm of the motif and 180 x 90 cm of "solid" color.
However the mudmee (ikat) motif Thai silk fabric shown below is woven in continuous lengths and sold by the yard (90 cm) which you can buy in any length. A minimum total yardage per order of at least four yards is always required for silk fabric order..
Shipping is done by insured airmail which is currently the best and most cost effective method that is also fairly swift. If your country does not accept insured postal packages we ship your silk by registered airmail. Shipping is quoted at cost as per Thai postal rates and is NOT included in any prices. Some examples of weights and rates can be found here.
Until your order is actually packed and ready to ship, we can only make an educated and experienced guess at the cost of shipping because the weight of silk fabric varies greatly. A recent shipment of one-yard pieces ranged from 80-160 gm/yard and included 80, 105, 110, 115, 120, 135, 140, 150, 155 and 160-gram one-yard lengths, including a five gram plastic bag for each, resulting in an average weight of 111 grams per yard, excluding packing materials.
This pure silk fabric is immediately available as of 7 September 2008. This page supercedes all other offerings of mudmee silk fabric on our site. We no longer offer any mudmee silk fabric except what is shown in our latest collection. When a silk displayed here is gone it is unlikely to be replaced or redone in a timely manner — if at all. The photos show by the thickness of the bolt how much fabric was available as of that day. (See photo of manager holding one yard lengths of silk.) You can order any of these by indicating Set Number and Fabric Number and the number of yards you require. We'll respond with payment instructions. Have a few second choices pre-selected in case any silk fabric you want is out of stock.
Sets 1-13 are available in relatively short lengths as shown, usually less than 10 yards. Mudmee examples shown individually are available in much longer lengths if required.
