Transcript of Soap Carving

Tools Used to Carve Soap:
How it Started:
During preparations for a major Thai festival called Loi Kratong, a servant of the King called Nang Noppamart was thinking about how she could improve on her Kratong. She carved soap into one of her favorite flowers to make it more beautiful. A Kratong is a decoration, lit with a candle, that floats on water.
Where it Came From:
The Art of soap carving first originated, about 700 years ago using Siam Soap. Siam Soap carving started in Sukothai, Thailand. Sukothai was Thailand's original capital from 1240 to 1530.
