Syd-Vietnam var tidligere en del af Cambodja, og der lever en stor cambodjanske minoriteter der. Vævet i den oprindelige cambodianske gule junglesilke. Tidligere var der en udbredt vævetradition i Syd-Vietnam, men den er forsvundet. I Cambodia siger de, at i Cambosia Crom, sådan kalder deres tabte land i Syd-Vietnam, vævede man ikat-silke, som man gjorde i Cambodia for hundrede år siden. Jeg havde for nogle år siden hørt rygter om, at der eksisterer en landsby hvor de endnu væver de smukke ikat silkestykker. Nogen havde vist mig et fantastisk stykke silke der var vævet der. Derfor, med støtte fra DANIDA, rejste jeg til Vietnam og fandt efter to dages rejse i Syd-Vietnam den sidste landsby, hvor de vævede cambodjansk ikat. Folkene i landsbyen var meget fattige, fortalte mig de ikke måtte tale deres sprog, cambodiansk, i skolen. Men endnu holdt de fast i deres årtusinde år gamle vævetradition. Jeg købte de stykker jeg kunne få fat i. En berømt italiens operasanger, har købt flere af disse ikat af os, og optrådt på scenen med dem. Nu har de sidste vævere givet op. Det tager 2 måneder eller længere at væve de ikat stykker, i den kvalitet, I ser her. Væverne er søgt til fabrikker, der lokker med flere penge og storbyens frihed. En sjælden vævekultur er forsvundet, men endnu kan I købe en flik af den.

Filmen her på siden, er optaget under min rejse til landsbyen i Syd-Vietnam, da der endnu var vævere i den.

South Vietnam was part of Cambodia, and there is a large Cambodian minorities there. The woven silk from there was woven in the original Cambodian jungle, yellow silk. Earlier there was a widespread weaving tradition in South Vietnam, but it disappeared. In Cambodia, they say that in Cambujea Crom, how to call their lost land in South Vietnam, one woven ikat silk, as they did in Cambodia hundred years ago. I had a few years ago heard rumors that there is a village where they still weave the beautiful ikat silk pieces. Someone had shown me a great piece of silk was woven there. Therefore, with support from DANIDA, I traveled to Vietnam and found after two days of travel in South Vietnam the last village where the woven Cambodian ikat. The people in the village were very poor, they told me they could not speak their language, Cambodian, at school. But yet they maintained their millennium years old weaving tradition. I bought the pieces I could get in. A famous italy opera singer, has purchased several of these ikat of us, and appeared on stage with them. Now the last weavers given up. It takes 2 months or longer to weave the ikat pieces in the quality, see here. The weavers are applied to factories that entices with more money and metropolitan freedom. A rare weaving culture is gone, but yet you can buy a patched it.

The film you can see on this website is recorded during my trip to the village in South Vietnam, when there were yet weavers in it.
