The traditional costumes of Thai ethnic women boast unique, attractive cultural patterns. The “Pieu” scarf is the highlight of the outfit. It is considered an indispensable item of Thai ethnic women among their many accessories. It keeps them warm in winter and shields them from the scorching heat in summer, according to VOV.
