Difficulty on finding the right person to be trained on handwoven knowledge transfer is now faced among PhuThai people in Esan, ThailandDr. Tiger, THfabricTG Lead
■ In the past, almost mandatory on keeping and transfering handwoven knowledge was succesfully done via PhuThai believe – “Tream Kerng” or “preparation of things before weding”. Unfortunately, this kind of believe has not mandatorated anymore. Instead, lady who is going to marry does not need to do “Tream Kerng” but commercialization of those must-use in weding event could be more easily done. This stuation lead to difficulty on finding the right person to be trained on knowledge transfer.
■ THfabricTG knows well on this situation and try to make connection with some Thai researchers or lecturors to find any appropriate solutions.
■ Problably, sharing and supportive from relavant stakeholders are needed for the best and appropriate solutions.
