Good collection of silk items but disinterested staff. One of the rare places in Chiang Mai where service is poor. They are talking among themselves, putting their heads down and resting and one gentleman was playing games on his phone even when I was just a meter away from him. And there was hardly any customers in the shop. I... More

We went here by mistake. We asked our driver to take us to Thai silk village so that we could see the whole silk process. He took us here. You can touch old cocoons to feel them, but the actual worms and mulberry leaves are behind glass. We got to see them eating leaves but did not get to seek... More

In Shinawatra you get great silk tour. You will be educated very well on the process and you will see it from start to finish. Bring your camers and make colorful pictures.

we went specifically to buy multi- coloured silk by the metre for an acquaintance and were instantly advised to continue upstairs where the metres were cheaper . The assistants were very helpful and patient and made our brief visit pleasant.

While in San Kamphaeng I visited a number of silk factories. The reason why this one stands out from the crowd is because you have the option of buying half a yard or meter. I find this to be very important for people who make bow ties and other accessories which don't require a yard of material. Its been said... More

You are next shown around their gallery featuring a wide variety of men,women & children clothing, cloth fabrics & souvenir items. Overall it is a very... More

We were brought here as a mandatory part of our city tour. We were served a welcome drink, which was good and then taken to a tour to see how silk is made. It may interest some, but definitely not my cup of tea. Would have rather utilized my time somewhere else.

Shinawatra Silk has been in existence since the early 1900's, l first here 11 years ago when l arrived in Thailand. The staff are so friendly and informative, before you enter they give you a cool drink, the lemon grass is my favourite, they then show you all about the silk worms, how silk is made on the traditional looms,...

Serene guides walk you through this step by step example of the silk producing process. Leaves, live worms, cocoons, extracting the silk, spinning, dying, weaving. Really very interesting, and a perfect photo op. We really aren't big shoppers, so we just looked at all the beautiful silk items for sale, but if you like to shop it's a great opportunity... More
