These extraordinary fabrics are hand woven on a straight loom. The threads are hand dyed, and then two threads of different colors are woven together to produce a fabric with beautiful prismatic hues. Our Cambodian fabric comes in unexpected weaves and weights: from a light yet opaque tissue shantung to an elegant silk organza ribbed with raw silk threads.
Golden Thread Silks also offers all-silk weft ikat, wherein the weft threads are tie-dyed, then woven onto a plain warp. Ikat is typically woven in 2-5 meter lengths for the Samphot Hol, or traditional wrap skirt, but we are pleased to offer this spectacular fabric by the yard.
