This research work has the objectives to study the designing and development of package patterns, products, from Surin Silk: such as; silk materials, homestead textile products, men’s-women’s clothes and bag products. On this research, the researcher had studied the context of the society in various weaving groups in Surin Province, textile product patterns, package patterns, materials and techniques, package production process in concordance with the intellects and production potentials of the community and the sampling group population in this research work subject is the people weaving group producing textile products of Surin Province and buyers of textile products made from Surin silk used in this research is weaving group of the Village of Takook, Khewasinrin District, Surin Province. Result of the research on this subject found that most of the populations make their livings in agriculture which is their primary occupation whereas weaving is their secondary occupation. Weaving group in Surin is desirous of having the packages for containing their textile products for their own group while management problems and hindrances of the group are found to be circulating capital and marketing as well as their lacks of knowledge and understandings in designing the packages. On designing the packages of Surin silk weaving group, the researcher placed the emphasis focally on data analysis primarily on the weaving group due to the reason that the weaving group has a very limited production cost of the packages. The researcher adopted the participating active research method by exchanging ideas, jointly working between the weaving group and the researcher in order to cause the problem analysis and find the ways in solving the problems and found that packages for containing Surin silk textile products must be in accordance with the specifications of the community product standard or One Tambon One Product (OTOP) where the pattern of production is not complicate; production cost is low; diversified goods can be contained in; goods contained in the package can be seen; the package is durable; can well cover the goods and express the specific identity of the group. It can be concluded that the package pattern is the exotic and novel pattern of its kind. The box and covering package exclusively of each unit is suitable for a show and transportation of the goods. Primary materials used as the structures of the package are papers and plastic sheets manually shaping up the structures of the package both by the method of gluing and ungluing. Package graphic expressing the unique identity specifically of the group is the mixture of the cloth designs and the weaving equipments by lessening the details in order to facilitate the shortening of the designs to their smaller sizes that will be a lot easier for printing process and must be easily communicable with the consumers by fully expressing the unique identity of Surin Province. On the part of the indication on and the details of the goods, it shall be in accordance with the specifications of the OPTOP standard. The graphic production technique is by way of photocopying, print by printer on papers or stickers and silkscreen printing. Obviously, such technique is an economized technique which can help reduce the production cost which, evidently, is harmoniously compatible with the potentials and resources available in the community.
