In the past, throughout northern of Thailand, Tai hill tribe’s textile had played a dominant role in every social practices; especially, communications. If we were to compare the pattern as a language, we would see that each character display are like alphabet, in which would communicate a message according to the weaver. However, as the years gone by those meaningful communication seem to disappear. Therefore, the concept of Moyogatari is a table setting that create meaningful context in everyday live.
