During the Covid pandemic, the ways of living of a lot of people changed. The Thai Silk Pavilion Community Enterprise in Chonnabot District is another group where the entrepreneurs received impact from the crisis.

The operation of the Thai Silk Pavilion at present is meant to succeed the inherited culture from the ancestors. Chonnabot District stands as the prototype of silk in Khon Kaen and is the pride of Chonnabot District. As our society nowadays is in the age of disruption, in order to enable the entrepreneurs to adjust themselves to catch up with the present world, they need to be strengthened in terms of their competitive capacity in the market.

The morning session featured a lecture and practices for understanding of brand building and the direction of the brands at Thai Silk Pavilion, by Miss Orapan Suwanjit. The participants also brainstormed their ideas for new brand building to meet with the market demand. Formerly, the enterprise group used the name “Thai Silk Pavilion” for selling their products.

This is the culture of Isan people that has been practiced from the past until today. The word “Sin” means clothes that are the identity of indigenous Isan. Besides, the word “Sin” has the same sound as the word “Sincere” in English, showing the sincerity of the Silk Pavilion to help the community. These words are used as the new brand.
