Who are we?

The IKTT specialises in the revival of the Khmer silk ikat. Throughout history, Khmer silk weaving ranked among the best in the world; however, years of war caused the ancient art to almost disappear. The beauty of such silk has been its savior. Started in 1996 by Kikuo Morimoto, we take a purist approach to the reproduction of traditional textiles, not just by recreating the style but by following the traditional practice seen a thousand years ago in the ancient times of the Angkor Dynasty. To achieve this vision, we replanted a traditional forest, where we cultivate everything from natural dyes to silk in the rich natural environment.
