Khmer Traditional Weaving Process

A piece of ikat fabric is combined by warp and weft to weave as a pattern or story. Each process took time and patient to do it in all steps of spinning, warping, designing, dyeing, tying, and weaving in the last process to become a fabric.

  • Tying and dyeing with natural color
  • Woven from ancient Khmer weaving

This is a very difficult and complicated work that we want to convey about Cambodian culture and identity, made of silk yarn. All processes are focused on careful following and monitoring of all stages. Khmer women try to preserve in this culture the arguments of the Khmer weaving culture.
