The remote, low-income Takeo Province is home to the Cambodian women's silk weaving cooperative. Over 500 weavers from seven communities work with them. Additionally, 350 farmers plant mulberry trees that yield cocoons from silkworms, which are used to create silk in the region. Silk thread is made from cocoons and then handwoven into the beautiful textiles you see here.
While empowering women and promoting economic growth in remote locations, this social venture aims to preserve Cambodia's traditional silk-weaving culture. The ancient craft of silk weaving is in danger of extinction, but the weaving cooperative is doing its part to preserve it by passing on its knowledge to the next generation. As a result, women in the region are able to stay in their homes rather than depart the area to look for work in neighbouring nations. Human trafficking, sexual abuse, and harsh working circumstances are common dangers for those who have been separated from their family and have little education. They become financially secure and able to work from home while taking care of their children at the same time by joining the weaving cooperative.
