The Support foundation (The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary occupations and Related Techniques) was founded in 1976 (2519) borne of the desire of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit to help Thai people most of whom are farmers to have the means to support their families with supplementary income. In addition, it is the intention of the Support Foundation to revive, preserve, and cultivate folk arts and crafts, which have always been part of the traditional Thai way of life, so that future generations can help safeguard their national heritage. This is in line with His Majesty the King’s royal initiative of Sufficiency Economy, where all Thai citizens lead a life that is both self-reliant and sustainable.

Support has succeeded in achieving worldwide recognition of Thailand’s unique legacy of folk art and handicraft.
