This is a tense job that forces Kei Khmer community to produce at a loss and with few customers. This work has lasted for a long time from mid-2020 until the end of April 2021 and is still in crisis, with the closure of Phnom Penh due to the Covid-19 disease. The closure in April 2021 exacerbated the crisis as community facilitator had to earn money to pay weavers to keep their jobs in the hard situation of markets closed.
If this job is stopped or postponed, the weaver will have no income to live on and will be able to give up her job. This work is very difficult for the sustainability of work and the preservation of Khmer ancestral traditions to a progressive society knowing its origins in ancient times.
Kei Khmer Community try to compile and preserve this work as much as possible in order to preserve it as a legacy and show foreigners the creativity of Khmer people in the era of pure handmade fabrics.
Thank you for supporting the traditional Khmer weaving from this natural color.
