This study investigates the elements and practices of the Phuthai costume in Kalasin via a qualitative research approach. The research methodology involves examining relevant literature sources such as documents, books, textbooks, research papers, theses, and conducting interviews using questionnaires. Additionally, field observations are undertaken to gather data. The research has two main purposes. The first target is to provide an explanation of the many components of the Phuthai costume in Kalasin. The second objective is to conduct a study on the practices of Phuthai women in Kalasin, specifically focusing on their use of costumes. The investigation discovered that several aspects of the Phuthai attire in Kalasin show an apparent resemblance to the entirety of the Kalasin region. The normative attire comprises a Phuthai shirt (Suea Tab, Suea Mob), Phuthai Xin Mhee, Pha Biang, Pha Phrear Mon Pha Prear Mon, and Kruang Ae Kreang Ea (ornamental accessory). All of its parts are works of art that are both scientific and aesthetically pleasing, and they tell stories of a civilization that has stood the test of time. These stories highlight the efforts of the senior Phuthai women who have worked tirelessly to preserve and pass on their costume culture from one generation to the next, ensuring that it will be a lasting part of the Kalasin province's heritage.
