Phairin was a participant in some of Kleiwerks International’s first trainings in Thailand between 2001-2003, including the first modern earthen building training and the construction of the first earthen village in Thailand with the Assembly of the Poor. Following the trainings, Phairin went on to start a business in cooperation with some of the village builders who also participated in the trainings. Together they have built multiple projects including an internationally award-winning spa. Phairin is a single mother living near Bangkok. We are proud that she has created a model business for natural building in her country.
