My dear followers, 
soon I´ll be travelling to Thailand for a holiday. 
Of course, I am super excited mostly about traditional culture. 
As I collect the traditional costumes of the world, I would also like to buy the Thai one, or at least a part of it. 

Let me say I truly admire the beauty of these clothes, however, I have no knowledge about it. I would also like to know more about the patterns, meanings, symbols and stories behind it, in order to appreciate this wonderful culture more. 

Does some of you know where to buy it? Or can you please share this between your Thai friends so that someone can advise me? Thank you very very much!
