The research methodology were 1) to test finishing silk fabrics for softness and wrinkle-resistant, testing of physical ability and then selecting one of those fabrics to be made into a garment; 2) to design and produce garments from the selected Thai silk fabrics, which will then be decorated with the registered Thai silk fabrics as follows: brocaded silk from Lamphun province, Praewa silk from Kalasin province, and Mudmee silk from Khon Kaen province; 3) to propose the results to Thai silk and Muslim clothing manufacturers.
