Cambodian textiles


As a fabric and textile junkie- and just having returned from Cambodia- this book, Pictorial Cambodian Textiles by Gill Green, grabbed me and pulled me in. Unfortunately, you’d probably have to find a museum in Cambodia to see this stuff in real life, I didn’t see a drop of it on my visit (this whole planet is turning into a ‘Made in China’ experience). Have a look, get inspired and make something of your own.
I’m happy to report- there is an Institute of Khmer Traditional Textiles in Siem Reap, may tradition and culture live on!
