Organic Silk

Saomao’s golden silk is organic and ecologically produced in villages in northern Cambodia where sericulture and weaving have remained unchanged for centuries. Our pure silk scarves are hand loomed from ecologically produced silk threads from the native silkworm.  

No chemicals or pesticides are used in cultivation because they poison the fragile silk worms, Furthermore, no mechanisation is used in the weaving process due to the irregular makeup of the thread. The weaving process requires highly skilled and labour-intensive methods to produce and the quality of the silk is extremely strong and hard wearing. 

Our silk is 100% natural from the farming of silkworms fed on mulberry leaves, to the use of natural pigment and certified dyes free from heavy metals, and the carbon foot print of is almost zero.
