Taffeta Silk Fabrics


The tradition of silk making goes back hundreds of years in Cambodia. Our taffeta silk fibers is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry Bombyx mori.

While there are many different insects that can produce silk fibers and the proteins needed for weaving, many have found that the larvae of the Mulberry silkworm have created some of the best taffeta silk fabrics.

Natural silk is handcrafted using patented weaving technique.
