Thick silk is the best silk quality with very few irregularities. It is also
much appreciated as it is keeps warmth in winter and cold in summer. Thin
silk, slightly see-through, is the lightest and most delicate silk. Soft and
silky, it is ideal for summer tunics. The tradition of silk-making goes back
hundreds of years in Cambodia. This silk is one of the finest fabrics in the
world. It is different from the other producer of silk. How different!
Difference at the process of manufacturing and normally hand woven, high
quality, which make this Silk to be unique, popular fabric of the world. The
process of producing Silk. Firstly, the raw silk yarn, from the silk cocoon
and is ready to be dyed, will be prepared for dyeing. The yarn will be
degummed, by using some natural components when ready the yarn will be boiled
and then the dyed yarns are finished and dried. Finally, when dyed and dry,
the silk is spun into continuous yarn on wooden reels ready for weaving. The
weavers group of Prey Veng produces Samatoa's fabric and scarves. The
specific weaving technic used in this isolated village offers a unique silk
quality in Cambodia.
