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 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. Væverne er søgt til fabrikker, der lokker med flere penge og storbyens frihed. En sjælden vævekultur er forsvundet, men endnu kan I købe en flig af den. 100% silke.

South Vietnam was formerly part of Cambodia, and a large Cambodian minority lives there. Woven in the original Cambodian yellow jungle silk. In the past, there was a widespread weaving tradition in South Vietnam, but it has disappeared. In Cambodia, they say, in Cambosia Crom, as their lost land in South Vietnam is called, silk was woven, as was done in Cambodia a hundred years ago. I had heard rumors a few years ago that there is a village where they still weave the beautiful ikat pieces of silk. Someone had shown me a fantastic piece of silk woven there. Therefore, with the support of DANIDA, I traveled to Vietnam and found after two days of travel in South Vietnam the last village where they woven Cambodian ikat. The people in the village were very poor, told me they were not allowed to speak their language, Cambodian, in school. But still they stuck to their millennium-old weaving tradition. I bought the pieces I could get my hands on. A famous Italian opera singer, has bought several of these ikat from us, and performed on stage with them. Now the last weavers have given up. The weavers are looking for factories that lure with more money and the freedom of the big city. A rare weaving culture has disappeared, but you can still buy a tab of it.
