  • I visited this woodcraft centre first in 2004 then again in 2010. It is what many people do after first visiting Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. The quality of workmanship here is outstanding. With many of the items on sale an astronomical price tag attached to the quality of workmanship taken to carve some of these works of art. Royal Thai Handicraft Centre was founded in 2529 in Thai time ( in 1986 ) and opened for business in 2530 ( 1987 ). Two years later , the Thai government incorporated Visit Thailand Year Mr. Pichai Putapitak, Managing Director and founder , predicted that the rate of development of the tourism/service industry would definitely continue to expand and be a successful business consequently , the Royal Thai-Handicraft Centre ( RTC ) was established at 232 Rama 5 road , Chitralda Palace, Dusit District, Bangkok. And proceeded to sell traditional Thai products and souvenirs to tourists specializing in teak wood carved furniture. Not long after, success developed remarkably and encouraged Mr.Pichai Putapitak to diversify the business to provide One Stop Shopping to meet the customers' every needs . RTC has worked in accordance with the Thai government tourism policy and has helped the Thai economy by bringing large amounts of foreign currency in Amphurto Thailand Due to the rapid growth of industry, The centre relocated its headquarters to 240 Moo 6 Tambon Dongruay , Damnoen Saduak, Ratchaburi, Province. Which covers an area of 150 rai and is conveniently situated only 9 kilometres from Damnoen Saduak Floating Market , the largest floating market in the world . it is separated into 1. Teak wood furniture factory 2. Wood-carving factory 3. Furniture and souvenirs show room 4. Residential and Recreational areas for RTC employees At present, the centre employs over 100 people and has a showroom of over 5,000 square metres in Ratchaburi and these showrooms accommodate over 800 visitors a day, and the centre has a vision to develop and expand the business to provide more benefits for our customers. One of the main objective of RTC is to aid in the development, improvement, and conservation of authentic Thai art and culture , which as each day goes by , gets harder and harder to find . This may be the last generation of truly, skilled craftsman and their work. Therefore, it is up to the Thai people to maintain the traditional Thai handicrafts and keep these culture alive.
