This project centers around identity replication from a survey of Khao Chan Ngam temple area, where the unique characteristics of the color painting were found that shows clear characteristics of the image. The purpose of this study is to replicate the identity for weaving and to design a manual to pass on knowledge of the patterns and weaving process for the community. The story's characteristics and storytelling in the images are reflected in the fabric patterns in order to clearly present the characteristics. The process of laying out artistic elements is used to replicate the identity, image, and transfer in the community products, which have been studied from the handicraft products of the community’s weaving from the process of preproduction, production, including various limitations of pattern designs on Ikat silk. The group of experts included Ban Du Silk Weaving Handicraft Group in Pak Thong Chai District, which provides information about the sequence and production processes, natural dyeing, weaving restrictions, and community restrictions, including the unique design of Ikat silk weaving. Pattern design using art composition principles to classify image characteristics can be divided into three parts: 1) Visual clarity; 2) Visual clarity; 3) Communication, i.e., storytelling. In the design process, the orientation of images and colors is performed. The design of the patterns resulting from the analysis of all 12 patterns is the replication of the weaving process and the production to create the experimental manual. 2 actual production designs displaying the prototype in production were produced. In the future, the group will benefit and develop creative and unique products for the community.
