Hang Dong textile and jewellery museum gives glimpse into Lan Chang culture

A small museum in Hang Dong, Chiang Mai, focuses on ancient silks and jewellery from the time of Lan Chang dynasty, ancient rulers in Luang Prabang. Visitors have the opportunity to study and learn about Lan Chang culture, its artisan lifestyle, and its spiritual beliefs. A direct descendent of the Lan Chang rulers, Chao Soimala na Champasak, was given permission by the family to offer the artefacts in the museum as a rare chance for visitors to be able to study her dynastic inheritance. The museum contains many ancient textiles, including Buddhist silks, gold and silver-embroidered fabrics, shoulder cloths, and a breast cloth belonging to Chao Soimala’s ancestor, Chao Yamkhamphang, as well as jewellery, hairpins and other ornaments.
