Takeo Province is a rural, low-income area where the Cambodian women's silk weaving cooperative is based. They have around 500 weavers from seven communities working for them. Silk is also grown locally by 350 farmers who grow mulberry trees and rear silkworm cocoons. The cocoons are spun into silk thread, which is then hand-loomed into these beautiful pieces of art.
The purpose of this social company is to save Cambodia's ancient silk weaving culture while also empowering women and helping the economic development of rural communities. The intricate technique of silk weaving is a rapidly fading historic legacy, but the weaving cooperative is educating future generations to preserve it alive. They provide career opportunities and training to local women who might otherwise be forced to migrate to neighbouring nations in quest of work. They often end up in risky situations such as human trafficking, sexual assault, or harsh working conditions since they are isolated from their family and lack education. The women become financially independent and can work from home while caring for their children when they join the weaving cooperative.
