Did you know that it may take up to three weeks to produce by hand one piece of scarf? The process of silk-making is really meticulous and starts from the cultivation of mulberry trees providing feed to silkworm, to silk weaving and confection.
Our collection of women’s clothing was handmade with 100% natural fine silk by our artisans working in the workshops in Siem Reap province. Since its creation at the end of 1990s, Artisans Angkor has strived to revive the know-how in silk-making by training new apprentices, in partnership with the National Silk Center (Centre National de la Soie).
The lacquer tableware made by our artisans is meant to be used in your everyday life and to suit your contemporary lifestyle while keeping a Cambodian signature. Our Ceramics collection features white porcelain bowls, cups, jars and vases that were made according to the traditional ceramic technique.
The collection of men’s clothing was totally woven and sewn by hand in our workshops located in the countryside surrounding the famous Angkor temples in northwestern Cambodia. Nowadays, silk weaving is still practiced in Khmer rural villages where this age-old tradition still remains.
