It was on this day four years ago at Friday Night Fight’s Rumble on the River show that we displayed our first set of handmade prajiouds. I remember I only wanted to do the prajiouds because I felt there was too much pressure to try and get a WHOLE set done just a week or so before Joel’s fight. That week was filled with a number of trips to fabric stores to get the right materials and a whole lot of trial and error to get the right stitching down. Strings and a bunch of unfinished pieces all over the house that I was just not satisfied with. Then I finally came up with this:
Just a month later I made two entire sets. One was for Rami and his team at Rami Elite and one for Joel. Both were displayed at the Take On Productions show in September 2013:
Seeing what we created and how beautiful the fighters looked when walking out to the ring or performing their Wai Krus lit a fire in us that has yet to burn out. Now, we are in our fourth year and have made hundreds of mongkol and prajioud sets, mini car mongkols, and keychains… and we are nowhere near done. We are always looking for ways to perfect our craft to satisfy all of YOUR needs and we love that all of you have supported us even through the changes we’ve made.
We really want to take this time out to thank all of the people that support us, especially those that have stuck by us from the very beginning. We value the friendships we’ve made and the love that you all show us everyday. Joel and I want you all to know that we appreciate your business, your feedback, and your love for Keeping the Tradition Alive. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for believing in us and giving us a reason to continue and we hope that you continue to support us for years to come!
