Mat Maker and the Exchange of Goods

0 Comments

Back in the old days in Chanthaburi, mat makers weaved mats only for self-using, gave neighbours, or offered to temples. But when its beauty and durable quality caught other people’ eyes, mat makers, therefore, seized this opportunity and engaged in trade. The local elderly told that when mat makers weaved to a certain amount of mats, they would take those mats and row a boat from their house to a market pier “Talad Luang”. No sooner had they docked the boat than lots of customers bought the goods in an hour. This made the makers proud that people valued their works as good quality.
