OUR HERITAGE

The Carpet Maker has gained a reputation as the most reliable high-end bespoke carpet manufacturer.
With more than 3 decades’ experience, we know how to cover a floor. 

Established in 1986 by our founder Mr. Soonthorn Kraitrakul, The Carpet Maker arose from his innate fascination with the intricacy and exquisite craftsmanship produced by villagers in Northeastern Thailand.

Mr. Soonthorn Kraitrakul selected a 22-acre site in Ban Phai, Khon Kaen province to establish his first hand-tufted carpet factory with an initial staff of only 7 workers.

Determined to refute the legacy of child labor and local exploitation in Thailand, The Carpet Maker set out to provide a stable working environment for underprivileged citizens of the northeastern provinces and to increase opportunities for skilled laborers. This provided a new path for local craftsmen. Instead of following the decades-long migration of provincial workers with little choice other than to leave their families behind to scratch for a living in Bangkok, locals could now find success and take pride in helping to build an innovative industry in their own backyard.

 

Their quality of life was improved immeasurably as they were suddenly able to find a satisfying local job that could support their families and give them a chance to remain in their hometown.
