Abstract

This research aimed to manage knowledge and develop a web application of traditional woven garments of four ethnic groups in Sisaket province that have the most outstanding clothing identity. They are the Lao, Khmer, Suay (also known as Kui), and Yoe. The process was divided into two phases. Phase 1 involved knowledge management and used in-depth interviews with representatives of these ethnic groups. Phase 2 involved developing a web application of the topic based on development research conducted along with the knowledge management process. The study found both differences and similarities in the traditional woven garments of the four ethnic groups. In all of the groups, techniques of weaving have been passed along from ancestors by teaching through practice, while there are now few inheritors among the young generation. The knowledge acquired through this research was stored in the web application that had been developed and transferred to communities and government agencies. This knowledge can be applied for planning activities related to conservation, inheritance, and development.
