Following a long tradition, the Cambodian silk industry has survived the country’s political and civil unrest and is very much alive these days. It is generally believed that growing mulberry plants, silk worm breeding and silk weaving was introduced to Cambodia in the 13th century. Initially, these activities began south of Phnom Penh, along the banks of the Mekong and Basac Rivers.
