Lotus Silk was founded by Vannary San in 2003, with the purpose of promoting local silk sourced from weaver communities in the provinces in Cambodia. The social enterprise has a beautiful showroom/workshop, The Silk House, in Phnom Penh, where visitors can shop the handmade products.
Lotus Silk’s designs are inspired by trends from Japan and Korea with an emphasis on classic designs and cute details. In addition to handwoven, hand-dyed silk, Lotus Silk also sources different kinds of high quality upcycled fabric at the local markets in Phnom Penh, as well as luxury vintage fabrics which is donated to Lotus Silk from friends in Japan.
At The Silk House, Vannary hosts a variety of workshops. The sessions are by appointment only, and you can try traditional weaving and tie-dyeing, and learn about traditional textiles and patterns in Cambodia.
You can read more about Lotus Silk on the website, and if you are in Phnom Penh, you can get in touch with Vannary and arrange a visit to the shop.
