    thai silk
  • Thai silk is produced from the cocoons of Thai silkworms. Thai weavers, mainly from the Khorat Plateau in the northeast region of Thailand, raise the caterpillars on a steady diet of mulberry leaves.





    drapes
  • Adorn, cover, or wrap (someone or something) loosely with folds of cloth

  • Arrange (cloth or clothing) loosely or casually on or around something

  • Let (oneself or a part of one's body) rest somewhere in a casual or relaxed way

  • (drape) curtain: hanging cloth used as a blind (especially for a window)

  • (drape) the manner in which fabric hangs or falls; "she adjusted the drape of her skirt"

  • (drape) arrange in a particular way; "drape a cloth"

Seven preschool commencements stretched half the week and through a half dozen slums in celebration of seven hundred graduates from thirty-two schools built illegally on Bangkok's squatter land. Children with only flip-flops and hand-me-downs strutted around in black mortar board caps and matching silk gowns trimmed in a shade of blue my folk back home call Carolina, and while girls and their mothers fussed with lipstick and rouge the boys did what boys do: swirl their heads until the tassels on their caps whir like blades of a helicopter. Dizzy, they fall to the ground.

The priest was there, of course, an old cuss now, grayer and more bald each spring. He conferred the diplomas and delivered each commencement address wearing the black and burgundy of Thailand's revered Thammasat University. Draped across his left shoulder was a velvet sash with six white stripes of cotton thick enough to brush and braid; three in the front, three in back. The honorary rank of a Thammasat PhD. If you were new to the slums or to their graduation rituals, a sash like that in places like that might stop you. And even if you weren't.

Arriving at the schools the American known by tens of thousands of Thai as, simply, Khun Phaw Joe ("Mister Father Joe"), would park down a ways and out of sight. He'd pull on the gown, fix the sash just so, then begin The Walk — a purposeful stride intended to put education on parade.

In a backwater where nothing good was supposed to grow, graduation had become a rite of passage.
