Housed in the Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall beside Vimanmek Palace (and included on the same ticket), the SUPPORT Museum is a showcase for traditional crafts that have been saved from decline by Queen Sirikit, founder of the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques (SUPPORT). One such craft is yan lipao weaving, which originated in Nakhon Si Thammarat. The fine reed used in yan lipao lends itself to intricate patterns, its sheen giving the end product a luster.
