The silk road meets the information superhighway

The Kohtrad Silk Project is a social enterprise that works with the silk producers in the Isaan area of North East Thailand. The project provides an online platform for the silk producers to sell their products worldwide.

This is done via two online shops – specializing in high quality men’s silk shirts and – specializing in beautiful silk scarves. Despite being only six months old the social enterprise has already begun an ambitious project to provide better internet access to it’s silk suppliers. Using profits from the silk shirts and scarves sold though the project, building is underway for a community internet hub in the rural Thai village where many of the silk products are made.
