** The additional photos is of me discovering the intricate, multi-step process that starts with an itty bitty worm and becomes a lovely organic dyed piece of art that we get to wear! Some of the patterns they use are hundreds of years old and take months to make just a scarf!!! China may have introduced silk to Cambodia...but their work rivals the best in the world (and all done by hand!!).
