Thailand is a country with a rich cultural heritage especially evident in its woven costumes and textiles. Thai costume has been influenced by the styles of neighboring peoples such as the Khmer, Lao, Burmese, Malays and Indonesians. Later, these styles were adapted to create a true regional Thai identity. Evidence of early Thai costumes can be found in ancient sculptures and literature. It was said Thai people believed that dressing up in the right color would bring them good luck. The color of clothing should be red on Sunday, white on Monday, violet and dark indigo on Tuesday, bright orange on Wednesday, green and yellow on Thursday, gray like the color of a rain cloud on Friday and black on Saturday. These colors were favorable both for daily wear and when going to war.
Since ancient Thai (Sukhothai - Ayutthaya - Rattanakosin periods), women wore a tube-skirt with front-pleated lengths of cloth. At the top of the body, they wore the draped 'sabai' over their shoulders and generally wore long hair sometimes worn up and held in place with an ornament. Members of the aristocracy wore jewelry or even a crown. From the reign of King Rama V, western costume styles became more popular, with the influence of the European powers. Women wore long blouses in the European style and carried a piece of cloth on one shoulder. During the reign of the present monarch, there has been a recovery of interest in traditional costume and fabrics. HM Queen Sirikit prefers to wear Thai classical costume for ceremonial occasions. Modern dresses such as 'Thai Ruan Ton', 'Thai Chakri', 'Thai Boromphimarn', 'Thai Dusit', 'Thai Chitlada', and 'Thai Siwalai', were adapted from ancient costumes. These six renowned dresses create the nation unique in style.
