    Having spent a lot of time in Thailand, i've seen many of these but this one is very good quality and extremely heavy - at least ten pounds. I'm tired and can't post anymore tonight, but there are a whole lot more to go. By the way - i got all this fabric for $1.49 per pound! Last year, the Goodwill near me converted to a bin-style sales floor and right after the transition, they were emptying out some really old and interesting containers of fabrics, textiles and clothes. There were around 150-200 people in there all the time and it was crazy. I'd go in every afternoon for as long as i could take it [about 20 min] and leave with a big bag of textiles to carry 10 blocks home to my house. I just packed them all into my old suitcases and forgot about most of them. Tonight, i went through them and took photos of just a few of them. There are SO MANY and some very interesting ones too.
