A Thai Silk Weaver’s New Home
All of us here at Thai Silk Magic get so excited when one of our weavers gets the chance to have a new home.
We are always proud to be able to help improve our village lifestyles in some small way.
It took 10 workers 2 weeks to build and it may not have all the luxuries often associated with modern city living but it’s safe, sturdy, water and wind proof – with electric power and a reliable water supply. What more could you ask for?
The cost of this home was about $6500 and the family can enjoy TV and keep cool with electric fans – very different from their previous home.
The weaver who owns this new home, khun Tong, earns about $275 per month weaving Thai silk with Thai Silk Magic and she saved half the costs of their new home in a little over 2 years.
Their old home that was knocked down to make way for their new home was build about 26 years ago and was not at all sturdy, had a badly leaking roof, perished floor boards upstairs that were dangerous to even walk on and had no windows or electricity.
Thai Silk Magic, by sharing all profits with our weavers, plays a real part in helping our village to enjoy a better lifestyle. We also helped a little with the purchase of a new TV and washing machine.
By marketing of our village Thai silk creations everybody is happy as we can share and help with lots of improvements – big and small.
