Cloth weaving at
Baan Nong Khao
Cloth weaving at Ban Nong Khao village started long time
ago. Ban Nong Khao village women weaved cloth during free
time from rice farming. The woven cloth was for home
consumption, for souvenirs, or for family members use
during festivals and traditions. In the past, the weaving was
done with the use of the waist loom, and hand.
In the past, cloth weaving methods and techniques were
passed to family members and relatives; but at present,
there were cloth weaving classes offered in the houses of
cloth weaving experts in the village. Hand woven clothes of
Ban Nong Khao village comprised the loin cloth, plain cloth,
and “mat mee” cloth. However, the generally woven and
popular cloth among locals and visitors was the loin cloth,
Hand woven cloth of Ban Nong Khao village was used to
make many products to promote its utilization. The
formation of cloth weavers into groups in the early stage
was in line with the type of looms used, i.e., the hand loom
group, and the shuttle loom group. At present, the groups
were formed based on particular objectives or functions,
such as, the voluntary weaving women group, the dying
group, the weaving women group of Suvarnabhum
Agricultural Cooperative Limited, and free lance weaving
groups under other financial supporters.
Consumers of Nong Khao hand woven cloth comprised local Ban
Nong Khao villagers (50 percent), and regular customers and
passer-bys (50 percent). Problems and obstacles of the hand
woven cloth production occupation of Ban Nong Khao village
were the lack of weaving personnel during the rice farming
season, resulting in insufficient cloth production for the market,
and the lack of capital for purchasing raw materials for the dying
As for the future trend, the hand woven cloth production
occupation would still be with Ban Nong Khao village, due to
the reasons that the villagers still value the wearing of their
local hand woven clothes, and take pride in the identity and
beauty of local cloth and their various products; and that
the clothes and their products are still highly popular with
people from other places.
Therefore, the hand woven cloth occupation would continue to
thrive and be a community business that could generate
incomes, create jobs, and be a supplementary occupation for
women groups in the community to achieve on-going
sustainable self-reliance.

Organic Home
The story of Ban Klang tung is spread continuously by
word of mouth – a remarkable couple in a remarkable
Ban Klangtung Organic Home is a welcoming home-stay where
Aunty add-Thippawan and Uncle Khon-Sakhon Prasertkul
built a little house they hoped to use for their own retirement.
One day, Aunty Add welcomed a guest to her home and she
realized that sharing her natural way of life could help make
the world a better place. So she built another small house with
a wide veranda, decorated every last corner by herself with
charming bric-a-brac, and created 3 room, each with its own
character. All bedding has been carefully chosen with none
being bleached or dyed. In front of main house, another guest
house has been built to accommodate other guests. Everybody
comes for the same reason, to escape their chaotic lifestyles,
relax in a slower-moving natural world, and experience the
many activities that reflect the traditional Thai way of life.
This can be done by resting under the shade of the big trees,
using the reading corner and he hammocks, and simply
admiring the lush green rice paddies out the front.
Aunth Add welcomes everybody
with butterfly pea juice, a local
herbal delicacy. All guests can
learn how to make this juice with
Uncle Khon, an expert in Thai
cooking." The butterfly pea is an
easily found local flower that can
be made into a refreshing juice.
Lt illustrates the simplicity of
Thai life and the use of everyday
objects,” says a smiling Aunty
Add, offering a juice to a newlyarrived guest. Those who want to
sample traditional ‘Thai ness’
can make a FLOWER
LEAF VASE after sharpening
coconut palm sticks and
arranging their flowers to their
own design.
Many of the activities at Ban Klangtung Organic Home explore the
bond with nature that modern generations may be neglecting. One
example is fish-weaving.“ ln the past, Thais used woven palm leaf
fish to relax tired kids. Because we had no toys we used our
knowledge of natural objects to weave the fish and make
children’s mobiles. This was not only for pleasure but also to
enhance the children’s development,” she explains.
Cooking is another activity that uses the natural resources of the
surrounding environment. Uncle Khon is happy to share his skills
with visitors. He creates the menu and asks the guests to select
and pick the organic vegetable ingredients from around the house.
The beautiful smell of hot curries from the kitchen is a testimony
to his skills as he prepares another dish in the relaxed cooking
