Kapok Blended Fabric

Fully Kapok fibers derive from the Bombax ceiba’s fruits gathered around Siem Reap and Battambang. This majestic type of tree has impressive trunk and roots; several of them are known for growing out of Ta Prohm temple at Angkor.

From that fiber mixed with our high-quality lotus or Silk yarn, we developed a very soft-touch, warm, quick-drying and light fabric.
