Since July 1st, 2016, la Tisserie, Textile Museum of Lorient Area in South Brittany, has welcome the exhibition Krama of Cambodia, Fabric of Identity (Krama du Cambodge, Etoffe d’Identité) produced by the non-profit agency Ateliers Monde. In a multimedia display that combines didactic panels, videos, photography, and textile samples, the show includes two stories from Tissus & Artisans du Monde: Thea and the Natural Dyes and Mai, Weaver from Takeo. Ateliers Monde has also invited illustrator Eudoxie and photographer Savary Chhem-Kieth from Khemara Khmer Cultural Center to share their vision of Cambodia’s traditional checkered cloth. Finally the agency has produced a limited-edition krama-inspired scarf collection in cotton and natural dyes that will be for sale during the whole exhibition.
