Profile of the Artist
The Cambodian women's silk weaving cooperative is located in Takeo Province, which is a rural, low-income area. They employ more than 500 weavers from seven villages in the region. The silk that is manufactured locally is also grown by 350 farmers who cultivate mulberry trees for the purpose of producing silkworm cocoons in their fields. Silk thread is extracted from cocoons and then hand-loomed into these stunning pieces of art, which are made entirely of silk.
The objective of this social enterprise is to preserve Cambodia's ancient silk weaving culture while also empowering women and helping the economic development of rural and remote places. It is a quickly vanishing ancient tradition, but the weaving cooperative is preparing new generations to continue on the heritage of silk weaving. In exchange, they give employment and training opportunities for women in the region who would otherwise be forced to seek employment in neighbouring nations. Due to the fact that they are removed from their family and lack education, kids are frequently placed in risky situations such as human trafficking, sexual abuse, or hazardous working conditions. The ladies achieve financial independence and the flexibility to work from home while still caring for their children as a result of their participation in the weaving cooperative.
