Weaving and silk weaving in particular is part of Cambodian tradition.
Like many countries in Southeast Asia and other countries in the
world, Cambodian silk uses a type of ikat but there are also other
types of silk and silk design. In addition to silk weavers mix
silk with cotton. Today they use a cotton synthetic combination,
but in the past they used pure cotton. The combination threads
create a soft and durable cloth with its own special quality.
