Natural silk fabric

A renewable and ecological fabric

The tradition of natural silk fabric making goes back hundreds of years in Cambodia.

The silk used at Samatoa’s is one of the finest fabrics in the world and is quite unique. Our clothing range is hand woven and high quality, creating an outstanding result.

Natural silk is handcrafted using a patented spinning and weaving technique. This completely renewable and ecological fabric can be found in some of the world’s most in demand fashion lines. We find natural silk in wallets, clothing items, underwear, ties and more. The nice part about natural silk is that it’s very soft to the touch, airy and can create some beautiful fashion accessories. It can be dyed into any variety of colors, and is extremely durable when hand-woven.

Natural silk fabric is mostly composed of fibroin which comes from cocoons produced by insects. Many insects can produce the silk fibers and the proteins that are needed for weaving. However, the Mulberry silkworm have produced some of the best results. In most cases, silk is taken directly from their cocoons. With the strong silk components created by the Mulberry silkworm, it’s possible to create natural silk fabric that refracts incoming light into a prismatic structure. This is why quite a lot of high quality handmade natural silk fabric seems to appear shiny or to have multiple colors.

Silk has an extensive history and people have been using it as far back as 3500 BC. By crafting consumer goods with silk materials, we can avoid utilizing in excess chemicals and non-renewable resources. That is why Samatoa has chosen to use silk created by the Mulberry silkworm for its range of Natural Silk fabric.

Raw silk is the result of weaving thin, raw silk together, giving the fabric a natural and authentic texture. Cambodian raw silk is regarded as of the best quality in the world.

Thick taffetas silk is the highest quality, natural silk, with very few irregularities. It is also much appreciated as it keeps warm in winter and cool in summer.

Thin taffetas silk, slightly see-through, is the lightest and most delicate silk. Soft and silky, it is ideal for summer.
