The Critical Game Changer of Hand Woven Silk

Have you ever wondered how fabric is made outside of machine based factories? Or how many hours it actually takes to make just one metre of fabric? It's really quite hard to imagine just how much labour of love goes into it.

In this video, I'll show you how this process is begun whilst paying people a fair wage away from factories. There's a lot more to the process than you think. What do you think the total number of silk strands used in the warp for this piece of fabric? Watch to see if you're right! 

 If you've ever wondered what the critical game changer is for this industry, I discuss the trials that the makers are going through at 2:40min into the video. Leave me a comment below, I'd love to hear what view points you have around the issue of the decreasing trade of ethical silk in Cambodia.

  • Another great story to help us to know more about the processes involved in creating the divine fabrics we see in the finished products. How refreshing to see the cottage industries where instead of being enclosed in a sterile factory, there is a real community and homely feel. How fantastic that the artisans are able to work like this, as well as earning an appropriate wage and support. Thank you Anna for all the time and effort you have put into this. Shirley
