The textile handicrafts in Thailand have been promoted by the queen and the royal family on both ways as producer and consumer for over 40 years. Today, the Thai textiles not just have their own styles and designs but the trusted quality also. The market is getting bigger and better in both local and export areas.
The world trend today is the eco-friendly approach to sustainability. Hand-made materials are the most sustainable, such as the plant-dye that is being used in all parts of Thailand. Due to this, it is easier to manage with the waste water. In Thailand, there are increasing numbers of companies that make recycled and environment-friendly products.
technology has become part of the design section as a tool and management, but
this is just the beginning; it is not easy to have different generations on the
same job and make them get along smoothly. The integration management is the
way that Thai Government can adopt to run the policy to the goal. Besides, the Thai
government is always taking care of SMEs same as the industrial businesses in different
ways. In Thailand, there are so many programs of self development as well as marketing;
the business is only to choose the right one of it.
