Klum Pak or Klum Pid – refers to the funnel-shaped hood with the tuft attached to its tip. The hood is made of embroidered fabric to cover the ‘Pan’- a tray with a pedestal that contains the royal possessions.

The size of the hood can be varied by the tray or the usuade. Klum Pak is common in Thai royalty as they are widely used for containers and keeping the royal possession from dirt and exposure.
