Villagers in Bann Tonn, Kok Kian, Narathivas Province call the mats woven from Krajood as “Sadd Jood” which they normally used as mats for Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother to walk on. H.M. was attracted to the striking designs of the mats leading further development of this type of weaving into handicrafts that supplement the income of the villagers.
Originally, the villagers weave Krajood to use as utensils for various uses such as sacks to keep rice, salt, sugar, mats in different designs. H.M. the Queen initiated the setting up of Krajood Weaving as a center for standard Krajood Handicraft. Aside from advising, H.M. found the expert artisans on the subject to teach and diversify the products into baskets for clothes, fans, handbags, etc. The local wisdom is thus handed down to the younger generations for preservation.
