This skilled weaver is preparing silk thread for weaving some of Kasumisou Gallery’s “olive medley” silk scarves (shown in the thumbnail photo below). Our Cambodian silk scarves are woven entirely by hand with up to six distinct color bands of warp (vertical) threads and six to ten color bands of weft (horizontal) threads. The bright blue thread shown in the photo above will be used for one of the warps in our “olive medley” scarf.
Kasumisou Gallery is committed to preserving traditional craft skills and promoting the work of individual artists and craftsmen and small workshops or small family owned businesses.
We favor products with at least some handmade component, those made using endangered techniques and craft skills or high quality products made by organizations employing the disadvantaged.
We are based in Menlo Park, California and are online only. Please contact us for more information about our products, our producers or our mission to preserve, protect and promote traditional craft skills.
