Scarf made from silk, naturally dyed
2013-03-20 - This shiny silk scarf stands out because of its beautiful soft colours. The dye is made from natural ingredients, a complex trade that can still be found in countries like Cambodia where we found this scarf.
The silk scarf is handmade by Somneang, an artisan who lives in the Takeo province. Together with her mother and sister Somneang specialises in natural dyes, and achieves amazing colours. Each colour is made from plants and trees from their region.
