Bringing old-school arts and traditions into the new millennium is part and parcel of the Thai government’s plan to promote BCG. In this respect, Korakot Aromdee is exemplary. By combining kite-making techniques passed down from his grandpa with the art of knot-tying deployed by fisherfolk in his family, he has come up with innovative lamps, sculptures, interior decor and other objets d’art for local and international hotels, winning a trophy case of awards and accolades in the process. At home, his team of more than 40 fishers from the Ban Laem village design products that ensure his global renown continues to benefit his home.
